Ricotta Gnocchi with Corn & Tomatoes

These homemade ricotta gnocchi looked like they were going to be difficult to make, but you know…they were not! It was actually a pretty quick & simple recipe… & it seemed like a restaurant dish! We enjoyed a delicious glass of red wine with it while sitting outside on a lovely August evening.

Gnocchi with Mushrooms

Wow! This recipe is fantastic. The recipe was posted on cookscountry.com. We love mushrooms & I add them wherever I can! I have some friends who do not like mushrooms but I bet they could make this recipe without the mushrooms & just make the sauce. It is vegetable broth, parmesan cheese & some cream. That would be good on the gnocchi as is I think! I did not use cream, I just used 1% milk which I had in the fridge. I didn’t have any vegetable stock so I just used water! It worked out just fine. Very tasty. Murray said it was better then he thought it would be!! I like posting his comments about dinner because he is a good gauge as to what is good (sometimes!!!) I roasted some cauliflower, broccoli & peppers to have along side of the gnocchi. I think this recipe would also be good with some spinach added to the sauce at the end just to wilt the spinach. I love adding fresh spinach to most of my sauces. If you are concerned it might water down the sauce, because spinach lets off water when it cooks, just precook it, drain it & then add it to the sauce. I used the vacuum-packed gnocchi and prepared it just as the recipe said. I thought maybe I should have boiled it first, but I trusted the recipe and it was the right decision. This is defiantly worth making!
