CHICKEN GNOCCHI WITH BROCCOLI

July 7, 2016

Gnocchi is the lesser known sister of pasta. And well, I am a carb and pasta lover. So if you are like me and waited too late in life to get on the gnocchi train, now is your chance.

In this recipe, the gnocchi will be fully cooked after boiling, but we always like to crisp the outsides too. You can just toss them in a skillet with some olive oil or butter for a few minutes over medium heat.

    This looks REALLY good and and versatile. You could substitute any vegetable you have – zucchini, cauliflower, summer squash, etc. I would probably also add onions – we’re just onion people! This would be a very healthy meal and simple to make. Thanks for adding to my list of “recipes to make”.
