Oven Baked Gnocchi with Vegetables

Our little ones favourite dish of all time is gnocchi. I have cooked many different variations of gnocchi and every time she either protests or pretends she doesn’t like it. She just prefers her gnocchi with jared pesto stir d through. I think there may be a little food snobbery there.

To be honest I don’t mind gnocchi that way either and especially when you just want to make a quick meal, but you know what? Sometimes you just have to try something different.

I finally had success with this version and she ate it all. Just one note & that is you don’t need to boil the gnocchi. Just use it straight out of the packet. My favourite thing about this dish is the crunch of the gnocchi. Delicious!
