Cheesy Pizza Baked Gnocchi



Funny, but this is the first time I've ever had Gnocchi.....and I've been missing out! Fluffy pillowy mounds of pure deliciousness packed into every bite! Over the years I've met people who either hate gnocchi or love it. I'm one of those who loves it! Even my 5 year old gobbled it up. This recipe is super easy and super delish! You can't go wrong when you combine pizza toppings. Can't wait to add this to the meal rotation!


Cheesy Pizza Baked Gnocchi
Serves 6
WW PP=8
Cal 310, Carbs 47.5, Fat 8.1, Fiber 2, Protein 13

Ingredients
2 cups of your favorite pizza or marinara sauce
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1.5 packages gnocchi 
1.25 cups shredded reduced fat mozzarella cheese
1/8 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 oz. pepperoni (I used reduced fat)

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees 

Add a layer of sauce to a bottom of a baking dish. 

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook gnocchi for 5 minutes or until they are floating to the top. Drain and mix half of the gnocchi with the sauce and red pepper. Transfer to the baking dish and top with a layer of the cheeses and pepperoni. Repeat. 

Bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted. Enjoy!

  2. This looks so good! So different. I haven't had gnocchi in way too long, and making it pizza-fied? yes please.
