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 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! Cook proteins in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. If using ground beef, cook with 1/4 tsp. salt, breaking up meat until no pink remains and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes. If using jumbo shrimp, pat dry. Cook undisturbed until opaque and shrimp reaches minimum internal temperature, 2-3 minutes per side. Add to gnocchi as desired.
Prepare the Ingredients
Stem, seed, remove ribs, and cut red bell pepper into 1" dice.
Peel and mince shallot.
Halve roll lengthwise.
Combine garlic and softened butter in a mixing bowl.
Bake the Garlic Bread
Spread garlic butter on cut sides of rolls. Place on prepared baking sheet, cut side up.
