Spinach- Roasted Red Pepper-Thyme Gnocchi

Monday reset is definitely a real thing, especially coming off Super Bowl Sunday where I don’t even want to know my caloric intake. I like to think they don’t count if I don’t think of them. Right?!? In my fight to eat healthy and yet have a hearty meal I made a Spinach-Roasted Red Pepper-Thyme Gnocchi. Growing up gnocchi wasn’t in my repertoire of food, I introduced myself to gnocchi later in life as my love for food began. What I like about gnocchi is there is so many things you can do with it. The possibilities are endless. I hope you enjoy this dish just as much as my fiance and I did.

  • As the store was out of fresh thyme I had to use dried, but ultimately fresh thyme will make the gnocchi even better.
  • We used plain gnocchi but sweet potato gnocchi is a great option as well.
  • Feel free to leave the cheese off if you would like to make the meal even a little healthier. I just can’t help myself. Cheese is an everyday must.
Add Ins:
  • Sun dried tomatoes
  • Pine nuts
  • Balsamic drizzle
