These gnocchi (Italian potato dumplings) are crisped in the pan directly from the freezer, completely eliminating the need to boil them first. The result is a consistency that’s something between pasta and a pan-fried dumpling. For a little extra crunch and protein, add a handful of toasted nuts to the dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 16-oz. pkg. frozen gnocchi
  • 2 Tbs. butter
  • 2 tsp. olive oil, divided
  • 1 lb. cremini mushrooms, quartered (4 cups)
  • 8 oz. Brussels sprouts, thinly sliced crosswise (3 cups)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • 1/4 cup shaved Parmesan, for garnish, optional

Preparation

1. Heat butter in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add gnocchi, and cook 4 to 5 minutes, turning often, until browned. Transfer to large bowl.

2. Pour 1 tsp. oil into pan, and add mushrooms. Cook 7 minutes, or until mushroom liquid has evaporated. Season with salt and pepper, if desired, and transfer to same bowl as gnocchi.

3. Pour remaining oil into pan, and add Brussels sprouts. Sauté 5 to 7 minutes, or until sprouts are crisp-tender. Add garlic, and cook 1 minute more. Return mushrooms and gnocchi to pan, and sauté 2 minutes, or until warmed through. Serve garnished with Parmesan, if desired.
