Sheet Pan Gnocchi

I never had gnocchi growing up, we weren’t Italian nor were my parents big into pasta dishes so I didn’t get the chance to experience the magic of these little potato clouds called gnocchi until just a few years ago. And when I discovered them oh man I could stop with the gnocchi recipes!

Naturally my gnocchi moved their way from a pot of boiling water to the oven real fast. I love my sheet pan meals and gnocchi and vegetables are the perfect match.

Now when I was developing this recipe I really went for it with the vegetables, like I really stuff the pan full. So this meal definitely gets your your veggies for the day!

Crispy Sheet Pan Gnocchi and Veggies

You start of this dish with a pound of store bought gnocchi. Usually found in the pasta aisle I recommend not using frozen gnocchi for this recipe, go with the shelf stable variety. Although you really could if you wanted to the frozen gnocchi just might make the whole pan watery as the gnocchi heat up.

Next vegetables, like I said I use A LOT.

2 Bell Peppers

1 Zucchini

1 Onion

1 container Sliced Mushrooms

1 container of Cherry Tomatoes

5 cloves Garlic

Is garlic a vegetable?

(Okay so I just checked the internet and according to the internet it kind of is a vegetable. Garlic truly is in a class of its own, a cousin to the onion. So it doesn’t truly fit the description of vegetable, herb, or spice so many just lump it in with the vegetable family)

Back to the rest of the ingredients, on top of the vegetables and gnocchi we have olive oil, salt, pepper, dried rosemary, dried thyme, fresh basil, and parmesan cheese. 

The oil and spices are used to coat the gnocchi and vegetables for baking and the fresh basil and parmesan are for garnishing.

Can I switch up the vegetables?

Absolutely!

If mushrooms aren’t your jam, thats okay leave them out. If you aren’t the biggest pepper fan use only one. Or try using a red onion instead of a sweet onion.

This meal is definitely open to interpretation! My only bit of advise would be to make sure you don’t over crowd the recipe any more than what the recipe calls for I tried adding even more, it didn’t work. I had to cut it back to the amount and that is the recipe I am sharing with you today, otherwise it just didn’t bake right.
