TOSS gnocchi with asparagus mixture and Parmesan cheese.
DOLLOP with ricotta.
For added flavour, sprinkle with torn basil leaves before serving.
What really makes this dish show-stopping is the base of fresh gnocchi filled with a combination of three incredible cheeses like mozzarella, Emmental, comté and white cheese. Unlike traditional tender gnocchi, this skillet version is sautéed for a crispy outer shell with a soft and gooey cheesy inside. When combined with the spring asparagus and fresh flavours, it makes a wonderful meal to impress your family or dinner guests.
If you have trouble locating fresh asparagus, simply swap in snap peas, rapini, leeks, broccolini, kale or green beans.
Serve as a filling bowl on its own or pair with any meat cut of choice or extra vegetables. While this meal is naturally meat free, to add a bit more protein include salmon, cooked and crumbled bacon or shredded chicken.
