Pan Fried Gnocchi with Sautéed Tomatoes & Boccaccini


So, I was on my own for dinner the other night, the in house taste tester was out with his buddies.  I decided to make one of the recipes I like to call "Single Girl Dinners".  These are things I know my sweet will not appreciate as much as I will.


This pan fried gnocchi with sautéed tomatoes and boccaccini was so very good! It is really everything I love about food. Pasta, tomatoes, cheese, basil and it was crispy to boot!

The gnocchi gets really nice and crisp on the outside but stays soft and tender on the inside, the tomatoes are sweet and tangy and the cheese melts just a little so it is a bit stringy but still maintains a nice bite.


I have no doubt you will love it as much as I did!

What you need,

½ lb. potato gnocchi
2 tbsp. butter
1 pint of tiny tomatoes, any variety you like, sliced in half
½ tsp. granulated sugar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup mini boccaccini
½ cup fresh basil leaves, sliced thinly
Salt & Pepper
Parmesan cheese, shaved for serving

In a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat melt the butter until it is foaming. Add the gnocchi and cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally until brown and crisp. Remove the cooked gnocchi to a plate. 

Add the tomatoes to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until they just start to soften. Add the sugar and salt and pepper to taste.
Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more.

Add the gnocchi back to the pan and toss to combine.
Off the heat add the boccaccini and basil.

Serve right away with a few shaving of parmesan cheese.


This was AH-MAZING! It is one of the best single girl dinners I have ever made. I absolutely loved it,
I will be making it again before long, it was so good!


Enjoy!

    Central obesity, or belly fat, is a known risk factor for developing Type 2 diabetes, because the fat cells in the abdomen make hormones involved in fat and carbohydrate metabolism and inflammation. Waist size is one way of predicting a person's chance of preventing or controlling the condition.
