A Winter Snow Day OOTD
January 25, 2021
This month I’m celebrating National Pasta Month, and today’s feature dish is this tasty spinach gnocchi with a creamy lemon sauce!
You guys. It’s that time of year that I wait for all. year. long. It’s National Pasta Month! Yes, this is a thing. A month full of celebrating that most beautifully tender and hearty staple in Italian and American diets: pasta.
Okay let’s be real people: my whole life is a celebration of pasta. Unfortunately for myself, I turned 30 this year and after a life time of running fast, my metabolism decided to merge over into the slow lane apparently. Which is disappointing, but just means that I have to be more selective about the pasta dishes I enjoy and make sure everyone counts most deliciously!

And today’s recipe, let me tell you about it. This is a winner! I know, I know: gnocchi isn’t technically pasta, it’s more of a dumpling. But it’s got flour and eggs mixed in with those potatoes, so it’s as good as pasta in my book! These gnocchi are a twist on the traditional potato gnocchi as I used some blanched spinach to give the dough some beautiful specks of green color. After cooking these gnocchi, I sautéed them until they were golden brown on all sides, which is really the way to go if you ask me! This method gives them that lightly crisped outer coating while keeping the inside nice and tender. Finished with a simple white wine butter sauce kicked up a notch with the addition of mascarpone for a creamy touch, and these gnocchi are a winning dinner for these cooler nights!
