A note about serious food allergies

Gnocchi? Yes chi. (We've been waiting years to make that joke.) But in all seriousness, the rich delight of gnocchi goes so well with creamy sauces, and sauces like this, with tangy roasted pepper melding with cream for a true bonanza of flavor. And just in case you want to carb it up, garlic bread on the side. Some gnocchi, we say yes-cchi…. Ok, we're done for now. Tip: This recipe has a shallot, which sometimes is rough to mince. Easiest way to mince shallot? Make thin slices lengthwise, then slices across, resulting in minced shallot.

  • Meatlovers! If using protein, cook in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat with 1 tsp. olive oil. If using diced chicken breasts, pat dry. Stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using shrimp, pat dry. Cook until pink and shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. If using steak strips, pat dry, coarsely chop, then separate pieces. Stir occasionally until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. Add to gnocchi as desired.

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut bell pepper into 1" dice.

    Peel and mince shallot.

  2. 2

    Toast the Garlic Bread

    Place garlic bread on prepared baking sheet.

    Toast in hot oven until heated through, 10-12 minutes.

    While garlic bread toasts, continue recipe.

  3. 3

    Cook the Gnocchi

    Line a plate with a paper towel. Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 1 Tbsp. olive oil.

    Add gnocchi to hot pan and stir occasionally until tender and golden-brown, 5-7 minutes.

    Remove from burner. Transfer gnocchi to towel-lined plate. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.

  4. 4

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook gnocchi to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add bell peppers and shallots to hot pan. Stir occasionally until shallots are softened, 3-5 minutes.

    Stir in 1/3 cup water, peas, mirepoix base, butter (to taste), softened cream cheese, and a pinch of pepper. Bring to a simmer.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until peas are heated through and sauce is thick and creamy, 1-2 minutes.

    Gently stir in gnocchi until coated. If sauce is too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached.

    Remove from burner.
