Peas And Prosciutto Make Gnocchi Sing
Pasta and cream sauces go together like surf and sea. Adding vegetables to the sauce, though, is something a little more unusual that adds a nice unexpected flavor.
Gnocchi is one of those great pastas that's delicious no matter what kind of sauce you put over it. It's yummy with pesto, delicious with a thick cream sauce or savory when bathed in Bolognese. And while I've often included vegetables in my pasta dishes, I'd never thought of mixing them in while making the cream sauce. Better Homes and Gardens are the ones who suggested stirring peas into the Parmesan cream sauce. The flavor the little green spheres added was subtle but heightened the dish to an unexpected level. And by adding in a cup or two of peas, you're bathing the dreaded vegetable in cheese, which means little picky mouths will not only get their veggies, but enjoy the dish as well.
