Gnocchi are like little pillows of potato-ey dumpling perfection, and there's almost as many ways to enjoy them as stars in the sky. We use them for a stunningly simple preparation that yields a superior eating experience. After a quick dip in boiling water, the gnocchi luxuriate in a rich truffle cream, then get topped with a flavorful arugula salad with cremini mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes. This dish has elegance in spades, but is simple enough for your busiest weeknight.

Before You Cook

  • Step 1 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Stem thyme. Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices. Place sun-dried tomatoes in a mixing bowl and cover with 2 Tbsp. hot tap water. Allow to rehydrate 10 minutes, then blot dry before using. Leave croutons in their shipping bag and, using a small pan or pot, crush into large crumbs.

  • Step 2 - Cook the Mushrooms

    Cook the Mushrooms

    Heat 2 tsp. olive oil in a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms to hot pan and cook undisturbed 3 minutes. Stir and continue cooking 5-6 minutes, or until mushrooms are browned and softened. Add sun-dried tomatoes and half the thyme. Season with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Stir to combine, cook 1 more minute, remove from heat, and set aside.

  • Step 3 - Cook the Gnocchi

    Cook the Gnocchi

    Add gnocchi to boiling water and stir gently. Cook 3-4 minutes, or until gnocchi float to surface. Reserve ¼ cup gnocchi cooking water, then drain gnocchi in colander.

  • Step 4 - Prepare the Sauce

    Prepare the Sauce

    Return pot gnocchi cooked in to medium heat. Add heavy cream, half the Parmesan, remaining thyme, and reserved gnocchi cooking water. Bring to a simmer and cook 1-2 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat. Add butter and swirl to combine.

  • Step 5 - Finish the Gnocchi
