A note about serious food allergies

Gnocchi are small Italian dumplings, whose name either comes from the Italian word for knot, or the Italian word for knuckle. (Both small things, but certainly not as delicious.) The denseness of gnocchi pairs so delightful with both the spring vegetables in this meal, and the creamy lemon sauce. It's rich, but light, filling, but not too heavy, a knot, but not a knuckle… ok, not so sure about that last one.

Customize It Instructions

  • Meatlovers! If adding protein, pat dry and season with a pinch of salt and pepper and cook with 1 tsp. olive oil in a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. If using chicken breasts, cut into 1” dice. Stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using salmon, cook, skin side up first, until golden brown and salmon reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side. If using ribeye, cook undisturbed until browned and steak reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes per side. Rest, 3 minutes. Halve to serve. Add to gnocchi as desired.

    Start the Gnocchi

    Place gnocchi on one prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil.
