Basil Gnocchi with Peas and Onion

>> Thursday, September 11, 2008

So this recipe just kind of came to me. There's no rhyme or reason just some things I threw together that I thought sounded good! Let's get started!


  • 1 shallot or small sweet onion
  • 1 small can of peas
  • 4-5 mushroom caps (any kind you like)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 cup marscapone cheese (if the have marscapone with basil - GET IT! So good!)
  • 1 package of basil gnocchi (regular gnocchi is fine, really any pasta will probably be good)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of butter
  • Splash of white
  • Splash of heavy cream
  • Basil (if you can't find the cheese or gnocchi with basil in it)


Corsely chop the onion and garlic and add to a frying pan with butter or medium-low heat. Sautee for a couple of minutes until tender and clear, do not burn the onion or garlic.

Next add in the mushrooms and let them sautee for a while until tender. Then add a splash of white wine and let that reduce for about a minute or two.

When the wine is cooked out turn all the way down to low and add in your cream and cheese and let the mixture sit together and get gooey and delicious.

While your mixture is melting together, get a pan of water boiling (don't forget to add salt!) When the water comes to a boil, add in your package of gnocchi. They should be ready in 3-3 1/2 minutes (basically once they float to the top.)

Once the gnocchi are cooked drain them and add to your cheesey, delicious mixture. Toss around for minute and then serve :)

I promise its so good and easy you will be sure to impress anyone. While this is a pretty heavy dinner, its great heated up for the next day.
