Gnocchi with Spinach & Grape Tomatoes
topped with Garlic Butter Breadcrumbs
Raise your hand if you’re obsessed with anything involving gnocchi. (We all have our hands raised over here.) If you’re new to gnocchi, it’s a pasta/dumpling hybrid that’s made with potatoes, resulting in an extra-tender, extra-carby bite. Here, it’s paired with spinach and grape tomatoes, then tossed in a creamy sauce. To top things off—in this case literally—there’s a layer of garlicky panko breadcrumbs. It’s the perfect crispy contrast to this rich dish. Once you take a bite, don’t be surprised when you find yourself making excuses to whip it up again and again!
Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Add panko; cook, stirring, until golden and toasted, 2-3 minutes. • Stir in half the garlic powder (you’ll use the rest later) and cook until just fragrant, 30 seconds. • Turn off heat; transfer to a plate and season with salt and pepper. Wipe out pan.
• Once water is boiling, add gnocchi to pot. Cook until tender, 3-4 minutes. Drain.
• While gnocchi cooks, melt 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings) in pan used for panko over medium-high heat.
