Gnocchi with Goat Cheese, Grape Tomatoes and Basil

As I mentioned yesterday, I have a decent amount of basil needing a purpose. To begin my basil quest, I searched through my recipe folder and the most recently saved was this dish by Jenna from Eat, Live, Run. Good enough for me!

This is such a quick and satisfying recipe. Who knew just a few ingredients and a couple of steps could put something like this on your plate? The gnocchi cooks so fast, and then all you do is mix in the rest of the ingredients and poof! Instant happy belly. Definitely a basil success.

Ingredients:

1 package pre-made gnocchi

5 oz goat cheese

1/2 cup cooking water leftover from boiling gnocchi

2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

1/2 cup torn basil leaves

Directions:

  1. Cook gnocchi in boiling salted water for a couple minutes until all the gnocchi float. Drain and save 1/2 cup water.
  2. Transfer the hot gnocchi to a large bowl, add goat cheese, cooking water, cherry tomatoes and basil. Mix well so cheese melts.
  3. Season with a little black pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
