This Creamy One Pot Pesto Gnocchi is SO delicious. It’s the perfect meal to whip up during the weeknight and has incredible flavor...did I mention it’s one pot and SO easy?! Yes please!
Mince the two cloves of garlic finely. In a large sauce pan, add a tsp of olive oil and let it heat up on medium heat.
Add the chopped garlic and cook for 1 minute.
Add in the jar of pesto and mix around, letting it heat up. Let cook for 1 minute
Add in the chicken broth and stir. Add in the half and half and stir.
Let it come to a SOFT boil - not a rolling boil, but make sure it is gently simmering then add in the gnocchi and cook for 3-4 minutes or until gnocchi are cooked through.
Reduce the heat and stir. Add the parmesan cheese and stir in. It should be thickened by now. Taste and if needed, add salt, pepper and red pepper flakes to taste.
Garnish with extra parmesan, fresh basil and red pepper flakes! Enjoy!
The starch from the gnocchi should quickly help the sauce thicken. If it doesn't, just allow it to simmer gently for an extra few minutes or so, continually stirring.
