Pan-fried Gnocchi With Peas, Asparagus And Gorgonzola

Pan-fried Gnocchi With Peas, Asparagus And Gorgonzola

I posted this video before, but a loooong time ago. It’s one of my favorite vids ever. I still laugh every time I watch it.

I saw a picture of this recipe in a magazine and thought it looked so beautiful.

And I made the recipe and it was beautiful. And incredibly good.

I especially loved how the crisp gnocchi contrasted with the creamy gorgonzola and the sweet tomatoes.

Light and full of fresh ingredients, it’s a perfect dinner (or lunch) on a busy day.

‘Tidal Wave’ from Chicago-based band The Hush Sound is completely addictive.

Band interests: “Maxin’ and Relaxin’ and we used to like Faxin'”. Cracks me up.

Check out The Hush Sound on the band’s Website, where you can buy their music.

Cheers!
