I love garlic, I love basil, and I love mushrooms even more! This gnocchi dish combines the classic flavors of basil pesto, with nutty Parmesan and meaty mushrooms (and did I mention garlic?) to make a decadent creamy dish that is a perfect dish to grace your Shavuos table.
Garlic Basil Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Parmesan
- Cooking and Prep: 20 m
- Serves: 4
Prepare the Gnocchi
Cook gnocchi as per package instructions, making sure to reserve half a cup of pasta water.
Meanwhile, combine frozen herbs, salt, pepper and olive oil in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 15 seconds, just until herbs melt
Slice and saute mushrooms until golden
Once all ingredients are prepared, combine gnocchi, Parmesan, herb mixture, mushrooms and pasta water (in the same pot the gnocchi was cooked in) cook over medium heat till the sauce that is formed begins to bubble, stirring occasionally.
Serve right away.
Note: If you REALLY like garlic, I would recommend using three frozen cubes, I tested this recipe both ways, and the three cubes really pack a punch!
