I like gnocchi served the usual way, boiled with tomato sauce and parmesan cheese but I also like to experiment, fry the boiled then dried gnocchi in bacon drippings and serve with bleu cheese and bacon dressing like a pirogi or saute in butter with red onions and jalapenos.
This meal took 45 minutes to make but you could skip the baking and broiler and be eating in 20 minutes and it is FILLING !
Step 1: Lets get started !
about 3/4lb of ground beef, feel free to substitute ground turkey or chicken
1 package of premade whole whear gnocchi
1 jar of nacho cheese dip
1/3 package of cream cheese (not shown)
half a jar of chunky salsa
diced onion ( I used half of the one shown)
Step 2: The stove
place a frying pan on the stove and turn the heat to medium
dice your onion and peppers then add to the heated pan
add in your ground meat and cook until light grey, strain off any grease, return to the fryi9ng pan and add your salsa
drop the gnocchi in the boiling water, they are done when they float (about 3 minutes)
add the nacho cheese and cream cheese to the ground meat and bring to a soft simmer
strain and dry the gnocchi, heat a frying pan and add some oil, add the gnocchi and stir or flip repeatedly until lightly browned
