My sister always has a pack of Biona's Gnocchineti at the back of the fridge for lazy days but until I tried her recipe I was not a gnocchi fan. I found it to be stodgy and flavourless but this is something completely different! Available from most whole food stores, these little pumpkin babies are delicious!
Ingredients (serves 2)
Knob of butter
Pack of pumpkin gnocchetti
Good quality pesto
Handful of pine nuts or seeds, lightly toasted
250 grams of spinach
Salt and pepper to season
Gently heat a knob of butter in a frying pan and add the pack of gnocchi. Stir gently until crispy on the outsitde and heated through which will take 3-4 minutes. In a separate pan, dry fry the pine nuts or seeds. When the gnocchi is gorgeously crispy, add a spoonful of pesto and toss in the spinach and a drizzle of oil. Leave on the heat for a minute or two longer until the spinach is gently wilted, add the pine nuts and season to taste. This is the perfect supper for those lazy evenings whilst still being healthy and delicious - give it a try!
