{eating} oven roasted gnocchi

Several months ago I shared about my experience with Sweet Peas Meals, and I'm happy to report that I am still loving this meal planning service. Some of the recipes I've received in my weekly meal plan are things I know I will keep in my "dinner repertoire" for a long time to come.

In this case, it isn't so much a recipe as a method, which is roasting gnocchi rather than boiling it. In case you're not familiar with gnocchi, they're little dumplings made from potatoes, and I find them in the freezer section at my grocery store. When I've cooked gnocchi in the past, I just boil them in water like regular pasta, and toss in sauce.

However, from a Sweet Peas Meals dinner plan I learned something new: gnocchi is AMAZING when roasted on a sheet pan. The edges get a little crispy while the inside is still soft. The best part is I can just dump out the completely frozen gnocchi onto the sheet pan--no thawing required.

When we tried it, we combined the gnocchi with fully-cooked sausage, peppers, and onions, tossed with some olive oil and herbs and roasted on a sheet pan (425 F for 20-25 minutes). It was delicious and ridiculously easy.

Have you tried gnocchi this way before? Have you learned any new mind-blowing methods lately?
