23 Easy Gnocchi Recipes You Can Make at Home
It’s pretty unfair that at most meals, we have to choose between our two favorite carbs: pasta and potatoes. Which is why we’re pretty devoted to gnocchi, the miracle food that manages to combine them into soft little pillows of heaven. Plus, if you start with store-bought gnocchi (as any sane person does), they’re the perfect foundation for an easy weeknight meal. Here are 23 of our favorite recipes.

“Done in 30 minutes” is music to our weary Monday night ears.

Making gnocchi from scratch sounds super intimidating. But we promise, this recipe couldn’t be simpler (plus, the ricotta makes the gnocchi extra fluffy). Prepare to impress your guests.
Mushroom Gnocchi with Arugula and Walnut Pesto
A magnificent umami bomb in a bowl. (And did we mention it’s ready in 30 minutes?)

We never said this was diet food (but we promise, the 2 cups of shredded cheddar are soooo worth it).
