A quick and easy gnocchi dish that is perfect for using up all those courgettes this time of year and on the table in 30 minutes!
Gnocchi is one of those package staples that are always in my fridge, perfect when you haven’t planned dinner or lost track of time.
In today’s busy world we have all found ourselves in the position where we’ve not had two minutes to think about what’s going on the table for that nights dinner.
Whilst I do like to meal plan on a weekly basis, we all have days like this. These days tend to coincide with having very little in the fridge. That’s the day I was having when I created the recipe below, the sun was shining outside and I got lost in the garden as opposed to the kitchen. Before I realised, it was time to pick up the girls from school and I hadn’t given dinner any thought.
On days like above its a case of looking at what’s in the cupboard and the fridge and concocting something out of it. Consequently, that day it was a chorizo, a package of gnocchi, a tired looking courgette and some tomatoes, however they made a lovely, light summer dinner.
Located in our store cupboards you will always find chorizo, bacon, dried pasta, tinned tomatoes, tinned beans (various), chickpeas, tinned fruit, eggs, paprika, etc.
