A note about serious food allergies

If you were to describe this meal in three simple words, it would be these: soft, sweet, and rich. Both butternut squash and gnocchi are nicely soft for the tooth, and butternut provides delightful sweetness. But the richness… gnocchi, Alfredo sauce, and Asiago all combine together for a decadence that'll lift your soul. You'll need to open a second bank account after eating this meal.

Customize It Instructions

  • Meat lovers! Pat chicken dry, and season with 1/4 tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. (If using whole chicken breast, cut 1" dice.) Cook chicken after gnocchi, keeping pan over medium-high heat and stirring occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. Tent cooked chicken with foil. Add chicken to sauce** with gnocchi.

  1. 1

    Roast the Butternut Squash

    Halve any large butternut squash pieces to roughly match smaller pieces. Place squash on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil and half the garlic salt (reserve remaining for sauce). Massage oil and seasoning into squash. Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until tender, 22-24 minutes, gently flipping once halfway through. While squash roasts, prepare kale.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Kale

    Stem kale and coarsely chop.

  3. 3

    Cook the Gnocchi

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil. Add gnocchi to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender, 4-6 minutes. Transfer gnocchi to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.

  4. 4

    Start the Sauce

    Add kale to hot pan and stir occasionally until wilted, 1-2 minutes. Add Alfredo sauce, ¼ cup water, remaining garlic salt, and a pinch of pepper. Stir until combined, 30-60 seconds.

  5. 5

    Finish Sauce and Finish Dish

    Add gnocchi and squash to pan. Stir until warmed through and sauce coats gnocchi, 1-2 minutes. If too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Remove from burner. Add red pepper flakes (to taste). Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping gnocchi with Asiago and crispy onions. Bon appétit!
