A few weeks ago, my bestie, Pam, introduced me to her sausage and gnocchi supper. I even posted her recipe for you. I have been playing with ideas in my head ever since. A dangerous place let me tell ya!
I have created three new recipes, derived from hers and I tried one tonight. It went over well, so I will share it with you . This is budget friendly and I think you will like it. I fed five people with this recipe and it can easily be cut in half. I can not wait to see what they think of the nest one.
NOTE: Can be cut n half!
1.5 pds ground beef
2 cans premium cheddar sauce ( see pics)
2 pounds pre-made gnocchi
1/2 cup milk
1 tablespoon taco seasoning
1 tsp ground cumin
1 small can green chilis
1/2 can tomatoes with chilis
black pepper to taste NOTE: I do not add salt, the cheese has more than enough
fresh chives or cilantro ( optional )
Put on a pot of water to heat the gnocchi. Bring to a hard simmer.
Cook beef until browned and crumbled. Drain well.
Add the cheese and the milk to make it thinner and creamier, stir well. Reduce heat to med low.
Add the seasonings and the chilis and stir well
Add the gnocchi to the pot of water and cook for 2 minutes to soften. Then add to the beef and cheese mixture and fold in the tomatoes gently.
Turn off the heat and remove from burner.
Stir well and serve immediately.
Garnish with cilantro or chives.
