Brown Butter Gnocchi with Spinach and Pine Nuts (modified from Cooking Light)
Serves 2 as main course or 4 as a side
You will need:
- 1 - 16oz package gnocchi
- 2 T of butter
- 1/4 cup pine nuts
- 2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 - 10oz package of fresh spinach, torn
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese**
**Note** I thought that the Parmesan made it too salty. In the future I will use an Italian blend of cheese.
Cook gnocchi according to package directions, omitting the salt. Drain and set aside. While gnocchi is cooking, heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pine nuts to pan and cook for three minutes or until butter and nuts are lightly browned. Stir constantly. Add garlic and cook 1 minute. Add gnocchi and spinach to pan and cook until spinach wilts, stirring constantly. Stir in pepper. Sprinkle with cheese. Serve.
