Chorizo Red Pepper Spinach Gnocchi
First let’s start with a quick Gnocchi 101, in case this is not a familiar ingredient. Gnocchi are small Italian dumplings usually made from semolina, flour or potatoes. They are prepared in a variety of ways using different sauces, similar to pasta. Traditionally you would eat gnocchi as a first course, side dish or added into soup. Chorizo Red Pepper Spinach Gnocchi however is a main dish, because it includes a hearty portion of meat, as well as vegetables.
Fast & Flavorful
This is another easy meal recipe, well suited to a quick week day meal. At first, I was a little skeptical because the recipe did not call for a sauce (I am a big sauce person!) But if you leave a little fat in the skillet after cooking and draining the chorizo, there’s actually plenty of flavor. Remember, fat is the flavor conductor!
You can purchase gnocchi fresh (in specialty markets), dried or frozen. I only used half of the frozen potato gnocchi I purchased for this recipe. The rest of the bag is stashed in the freezer for my next flash of gnocchi inspiration. Perhaps something in the pumpkin cream sauce category with crisped bacon to celebrate the approach of Fall?
