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.

Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If using protein, pat dry and cook in a medium non-stick pan over medium heat with 1 tsp. olive oil. If using diced chicken breasts, stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using Italian sausage, remove from casing, if necessary, and break up until sausage reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. If using shrimp, cook until shrimp reach minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. If using steak strips, separate into a single layer and coarsely chop. Stir occasionally until steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Rest, 3 minutes. Add to gnocchi as desired.

  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Garlic Butter

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

    Halve roll lengthwise.

    Peel and mince shallot.

    Mince garlic.

    Combine garlic and softened plain butter in a mixing bowl. Set aside.

  2. 2

    Bake the Garlic Bread

    Spread garlic butter on cut sides of roll halves. Place on prepared baking sheet, cut side up.

    Bake in hot oven until golden brown, 10-12 minutes.

    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.

    Once simmering, stir occasionally until thick and creamy, 1-2 minutes.
