I originally started this blog as a place to store tried and true recipes for my family. It didn't take long to discover how supportive and fun the blog community was and I became hooked! I rarely create my own recipes, but I still hope you'll enjoy the recipes that I find and tweak a bit.
Please forgive the completely underwhelming picture of this dish. I contemplated whether or not to even share it since the picture is so lame, but it tasted so good that I just had to!
I love gnocchi, so does every else in my family, my kids call them pillows! I found this recipe in a Racheal Ray cookbook, and it actually calls for ground beef, but regardless of the fact that turkey is less fattening, I think the tenderness of the turkey paired better with the soft pillows! I also didn't have fresh sage, so I just used ground and it was delicious.
Definitely try this, it's a family pleaser!
Turkey and Gorgonzola Gnocchi Adapted from Racheal Ray's Big Orange Book Ingredients
4 tablespoons olive oil 1 pound ground turkey salt and pepper 1 large onion chopped 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 3/4 cup dry white wine 1 cup chicken stock 10 fresh sage leaves, chopped or 1 teaspoon ground sage 1 cup crumbled Gorgonzola 1 (12-16 oz) package gnocchi, fresh or frozen a handful of fresh parsley, chopped
Directions 1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat for the pasta.
2. While the water is coming to a boil, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the turkey, season with salt and pepper, and cook until it is very well browned, about 5 minutes, breaking it up into bite-sized crumbles with a wooden spoon.
3. Add the onion and garlic to the pan and soften for 5 minutes; adjust the salt and pepper, add the wine to the pan, and stir for 1 minute. Stir in the stock and sage, then add the Gorgonzola. Reduce the heat to low.
4. Salt the boiling water well and add the gnocchi. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes until they float, then drain well and add to the skillet with the beef and cheese. Toss to combine. Top with the chopped parsley.
