Speedy Gnocchi

If you are ever in a rush you can pick up a package of prepared gnocchi and within a few minutes you can have a quick meal or side dish. I had never tried the store bought gnocchi so I decided to try them. I didn't even boil them I prepared them in a few minutes in a large pan and although they are not as good as homemade they were not bad!

You will need:

  • a package of gnocchi
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh chopped basil or parsley
  • fresh grated Parmesan cheese

Step 1: open package of gnocchi

Step 2: heat a large saute pan. Add oil and gnocchi. Cook on medium high heat for 2 minutes.

Step 3: add water and cover with a lid. Cook 2 more minutes.

Step 4: remove lid and once water has evaporated allow gnocchi to fry in oil until lightly browned. Add salt and pepper and serve with some chopped basil or parsley and a grating of Parmesan cheese.

Not bad! 2 minutes, 2 minutes, 2 minutes and you don't need to boil them and saute them.
