Cheesy Gnocchi Bake

February 4, 2017

Last month my hubby and I took a greyhound bus down to Vancouver to surprise my Mom for her birthday! We hopped onto a bus after my last class on Friday and surprised her for dinner! My sister had planned a surprise party for her at her favourite Greek restaurant on Saturday and it was wonderful! It was so lovely to see my family as I hadn’t seen them since Thanksgiving!

When we got back on Sunday evening I had to throw together a quick and filling dinner. I wanted something cozy and delicious and warm because the bus was cold on the way home! For Christmas my hubby and I made a double batch of homemade gnocchi and packed it up to freeze. I used one of those packs to make this delicious dinner, but you could easily use packaged gnocchi. I love to use these packages to make some of our favourite cozy dishes. I also used my homemade marinara sauce and you can find here.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of gnocchi
  • 1/2 to 1 full container of marinara
  •  Shredded mozzarella

Instructions:

  1. Bring a pot of slightly salted water to boil. Add a package of gnocchi and cook according to package instructions. A good indicator of the gnocchi being done is it starts to float.
  2. Drain the gnocchi and add the marinara sauce. Adjust the amount of marinara sauce to the amount of gnocchi you have and how saucy you like it.
  3. Transfer gnocchi and sauce to a baking dish (I used an 8×8) and cover with mozzarella cheese.
  4. Put in the oven under the broiler until the cheese melts and gets golden brown and delicious.
  5. Serve with green salad, veggies or garlic bread.
  6. ENJOY!
