Gnocchi are small Italian potato dumplings. They are soft like pillows, just melt in your mouth and to top it all off, they cook in a snap. I bought dried gnocchi from our local Farmer’s market and this recipe was on the package. I made it the same day since I had all the ingredients and I wanted to see how the dish was going to turn out right away.

  • 1 Onions – medium, thinly sliced
  • 2 Carrots – medium, diced
  • 2 Zucchini – medium, diced

Servings: serving
Instructions
  1. Cook gnocchi according to package directions. As I already said these take a snap, all you have to do is drop gnocchi into boiling water and the pasta is ready as soon as they float to the top. Just remove with a slotted spoon into a colander and keep aside till the sauce is ready.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp olive oil on medium flame. Add onions and red pepper flakes and sauté till the onions turn transparent and slightly browned at the edges.
  3. Add garlic, carrots and zucchini; cover and cook till the veggies are tender about 8-10 minutes.
  4. Add tomatoes and rosemary; cover again and cook for another 5-6 minutes, till the tomatoes don’t smell raw anymore. Season with salt and pepper; remove the fresh rosemary sprig (if using). Slowly drop in the gnocchi into the sauce. Serve warm with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese.
