Gnocchi with Broccoli and Pesto
If you've been hanging around here a while you know we've made gnocchi many, many times in the past. But has anyone noticed that it hasn't appeared here for several months now? That's only because we usually stock up on packages of gnocchi at Trader Joe's and we haven't been to TJ's in quite a while. With all that's happened with Violet these last few months we haven't been anywhere in a while but we did get down to Virginia Beach on Friday and that trip included a stop at one of the newest TJ's in Newport News. So we cracked open a package of gnocchi tonight and had it with broccoli and some pesto that's been in our freezer since this time last year (like most of the rest of our garden this year, the basil never really did much). On the side is some whole wheat toast with an olive tapenade that Darlene made last week.
