To make creamy pesto gnocchi, potato gnocchi is boiled in salted water until it is soft and tender. The pesto sauce is made by blending basil, pine nuts, garlic, and parmesan cheese in a food processor or blender until smooth. The creamy sauce is made by combining heavy cream, butter, and garlic in a pan and simmering it until it is thick and creamy.
Once the gnocchi is cooked, it is drained and added to the pan with the creamy sauce. The pesto sauce is then stirred into the gnocchi and mixed well. Vegetables like cherry tomatoes, spinach, and roasted red peppers are also commonly added to the dish.
Finally, the creamy pesto gnocchi is garnished with some freshly grated parmesan cheese, chopped basil leaves, and a drizzle of olive oil. The result is a deliciously creamy and comforting dish that is perfect for a quick and easy meal.
Creamy pesto gnocchi is a versatile dish that can be easily customized to suit individual tastes and preferences. It can be served as a main dish or as a side dish, and is loved for its rich and indulgent flavors.
