Brussels Sprouts, Cherry Tomatoes and Gnocchi
I always marvel at when we grow brussels sprouts in the garden. Mostly because it’s amazing to see them growing up the plants, but also because I know we have some delicious brussels sprouts meals coming!
We love brussels sprouts with kielbasa, cheesy brussels sprouts, brussels sprouts cooked in the slow cooker with sausage and potatoes, brussels sprouts and rigatoni and now this meal – brussels sprouts and gnocchi!
This dish uses brussels sprouts, cherry tomatoes and onions, making it a great garden meal in the Spring and Fall for us. I hope you try it soon!
How to Make in 20 Minutes
This is a simple meal to make, taking about 20 minutes from start to finish, all made in a skillet. Here’s how to make it:
Sauté brussels sprouts, onion and garlic in butter, cooking until brussels sprouts start to brown.
Add water and gnocchi and continue to cooking until gnocchi starts to brown on the sides. It’s important to keep stirring the gnocchi during this step or it will stick.
Add lemon juice and cherry tomatoes, tossing to mix everything.
Serve, with a little sprinkle of Parmesan cheese on top. Enjoy!
Can I add meat?
Sure, if you’d like to add meat to this gnocchi meal you can. Add cooked sliced chicken breast, sausage, shrimp or crumbled up bacon into the skillet and serve.
Can I use frozen gnocchi?
You can use either packaged or frozen gnocchi for this meal. Follow the recipe as instructed for both types.
How to Store
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. To reheat, you can heat it up in the microwave or skillet. I like to add a little drizzle of olive oil on top when reheating as it helps freshen the meal up.
