Gnocchi with lemon & chive pesto
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 2
Potato gnocchi make a welcome change from pasta. Give them a go in this simple veggie supper for two
- STEP 1
Place the garlic, herbs, pine nuts, cheese and lemon zest in a small bowl, season well, then stir in the olive oil and lemon juice. Set aside.
- STEP 2
Cook the gnocchi in a pan of salted boiling water following pack instructions, then drain well. Tip into a serving bowl and toss through the pesto. Serve with extra grated Parmesan, if you like.
Make the pesto up to a day ahead, but add the lemon juice at the last minute - this will allow the herbs to stay fresh. If you want more veg, cook some small broccoli florets, green peas or beans with the gnocchi.
