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.
