A simple little gnocchi recipe, and, we're going to cook gnocchi the wrong way on purpose :p
I love to cook gnocchi on a pan to give it a different texture, feel free to cook it the traditional way if you please!

Ingredients

  • 200g gluten free gnocchi
  • 3 tbsp pesto
  • 250g shredded BBQ chicken
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 100g shredded light mozzarella cheese
  • 2 large handfuls of baby spinach leaves

Method

  1. Place olive oil in pan with gnocchi (yep)
  2. Allow gnocchi to cook for around 5 minutes and add in 1/2 cup of water and stir the gnocchi around so more of the surface can touch the pan. This is simply to give it a different texture, you can boil it if you prefer.
  3. After another 5 minutes add in shredded chicken, pesto and baby spinach leaves
  4. Cook for another 10 minutes before adding in shredded cheese
  5. Let it cook with the cheese for approximately 2 minutes (just until the cheese is melted), then remove from the pan and serve.
