Sun-Dried Tomato Gnocchi with Basil Cream Sauce

From-scratch gnocchi is easier than you think with our Potato and Cheese Gnocchi Kit. But did you know you can add a little pesto to create an exciting new flavor? This recipe has it all… down to the creamy fragrant basil sauce.

INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. In a small mixing bowl, combine Gnocchi Kit contents with water and pesto. Stir with a fork until dough begins to form. Knead by hand until the dough no longer sticks. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and form into a loaf shape.
  2. To form gnocchi, use a knife to cut dough into 1” strips. Roll out each strip by-hand into long ropes. Cut each rope into 1” pieces. To create gnocchi’s signature ridges (optional), press the back of a fork into each piece. Dust gnocchi pieces with flour, cover and set aside until ready to cook.
  3. Heat the butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until translucent, about 6-8 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic, basil and seasoning spices and cook for another 30 seconds.
  5. Stir in the cream. Simmer for 7-9 minutes, until sauce thickens and easily coats the back of a spoon.
  6. Transfer sauce to a food processor or blender (or immersion blender) and pulse until smooth.
  7. Meanwhile, bring 5 quarts of salted water to a boil in a large pot.
  8. Pour the sauce back into the saucepan. Add the lemon juice, salt and pepper. Bring back to a simmer.
  9. Cook gnocchi according to package instructions. Once they float to the top, they are ready. Remove gnocchi with a slotted spoon and immediately transfer to the simmering sauce. Divide into 6 bowls or serve family-style.
