How have the first few days of your year been so far?

Have you been staying on top of those New Year’s resolutions? You know, because I definitely have (shifts eyes downward guiltily)………..yeah definitely. So okay, maybe I’ve already rearranged some of my originally listed things that sounded like such a good idea a week ago and traded them with some more realistic goals, but I guess that’s better than nothing right?

I won’t go as far as to say I believe it’s impossible for you to have your own things in order either, but come on, this is real life and therefore you probably don’t. Am Iย right? I mean, I could pretend that my life is perfect but how boring would that be? I feel like it’s way easier to connect with each other in our struggles rather than our successes. You know what I mean? But all joking aside, this recipe is no joke. It’s just seriously delicious!

So I haven’t made a gnocchi recipe in a really long time and I’m pretty sure I’ve only made the actual gnocchi itself 2 or 3 times. One of the biggest advantages that I love about making gnocchi is that it cooks very quickly, like 2 minutes and presto. Plus, if you use store-bought gnocchi then all you’ve got to make is just the sauce. Of course homemade from scratch is always going to be better and I completely recommend you try it sometime. I’m not gonna lie though, its kind of nice to short-cut things and use store-bought every now and then. In fact, it makes this a 30-minute meal when you do that, aren’t those the best kind at the end of a long day or a hard week?

Also, this is a perfect week night meal because you just simmer everything together until you’ve got a simple, yet delicious meal that I think your whole family will enjoy! Total win win situation right here.
