I'd like to make my own gnocchi some day. It's been about four months since I had that delicious dish in Chicago and can still taste it. I picked some up at Leon's and made a simple parmesan cheese sauce with cracked black pepper. The dish I had in Chicago also had parma ham and peas which I omitted since I couldn't find any in town that wasn't paper thin. So I grilled some chicken tenders last night to go with the pasta tonight and then forgot them. Putz! Oh well, we were plenty full of dumplings.
Our garden is overflowing with great things so a sauteed summer vegetable side sounded like a winner. Zucchini, yellow squash, onion, sweet pepper, basil, and garlic in a little olive oil. I debated throwing some cherry tomatoes in with the other veggies but held off. Maybe next time.
Have a great week everyone!
