Cauliflower Gnocchi with Creamy Pesto & Chicken


Ingredients:

  • 10 oz. Green Giant frozen cauliflower & spinach gnocchi
  • 1.5-2 c. rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • 1/4 c. prepared pesto
  • 1 c. heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 c. white wine (can be subbed w/ chicken broth)
  • 2 tsp. garlic, minced
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 -3/4 c. shredded parmesan cheese
  • parsley & red pepper flakes for garnish

Directions:

  1. Prepare the gnocchi according to the package directions. The “browning” portion after boiling is optional for this recipe, but if you do go this route – ensure you use a NONSTICK skillet.
  2. In a large nonstick pan over medium heat, combine the pesto, cream, wine, & garlic. Allow to simmer until it begins to gently bubble. Season with salt and pepper to your liking. Add in 1/2 c. parmesan cheese and stir until it begins to slightly thicken.
  3. Remove from the heat and top w/ remaining parmesan cheese and garnish with parsley and pepper flakes.
