Under 30: Baked Gnocchi with Peas & Beans (v)

Makes: 4 | Prep Time: 10 mins | Cook Time: 15 mins


Returning from our travels, one of the question most people have asked is if we're sad to be back. Of course we'd rather be travelling around the world, but that costs a lot of money and nothing beats cheap and hearty home cooked dishes.

Although, we'd prefer to had a bit more sun upon arrival, we knew this only called for a proper warm hearty homely dish, potatoes and cheese? Under 30 minuets to make? Could you say no?

Healthy? Possibly, but it's definitely the most healthiest meal we've had in a while. This is actually the first tie we've created a dish with gnocchi and trust me, we'll be making a lot more dishes after this.



Ingredients:

250g gnocchi
- 75g frozen peas 
 - 100g beans
- 1 x 125g pack asparagus tips, cut into 3cm pieces
- 200g half-fat crème fraîche 
- handful fresh basil, leaves chopped
- handful fresh mint, leaves chopped
- 1/2 lemon, zested and squeezed
- 1 mozzarella ball, drained and torn
- 1 tbsp Parmesan, finely grated


Instructions:

1. Preheat the grill to high. Cook the gnocchi in a pan of boiling, salted water following the packet instructions. Drain with a slotted spoon; transfer to a baking dish. Reserve the cooking water.

2. Add the peas, beans and asparagus to the water. Bring to the boil and cook for 3 minutes, or until just tender. Drain and refresh under cold water.

3. Meanwhile, combine the crème fraîche, herbs, lemon zest and juice 
in a bowl; season.


4. Add the veg to the gnocchi, then stir in the crème fraîche mixture. Scatter over the mozzarella and hard cheese. Grill for 3-4 minutes, until bubbling and golden. Serve immediately.

  2. I don't think I've ever had a gnocchi and looking at this I am questioning why. It looks so tasty. I love a creamy sauce and veg so this seems like the ideal mix for me.

    One of my favourite combos is fried gnocchi with onions, smoked salmon and cream.. So delicious! Also love gnocchi with a tomato sauce, chili flakes and crabe meat...

  6. This is making me seriously miss cheese! I wonder if I could tweak it slightly to make it dairy free as it sounds and looks so yummy!

  11. My mouth is watering so much at this post! I absolutely adore gnocchi, and adding cheese to anything can only improve it, so this meal is right up my street! I've just moved into my new uni accommodation in Leicester so I need to start stocking the freezer with different meals - this will definitely be something that I'll try! I feel like I can TOTALLY kid myself that it's healthy too, as there are peas and beans in there hehe! Fab recipe as always!
