Gnocchi with Turkey, Peas, and Mushrooms

"I like the convenience of packaged gnocchi. You could also substitute a small pasta, like farfalle or orecchiette, in a pinch." --Caitlyn Hurley, Morristown, Tennessee

Cooking spray
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 pound ground turkey breast
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1 (8-ounce) package sliced cremini mushrooms
1 (10-ounce) package frozen petite green peas, slightly thawed
1 (16-ounce) package vacuum-packed gnocchi (such as Vigo)
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated fresh Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil


Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add garlic and turkey to pan; cook 5 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink, stirring to crumble. Add crushed red and ground red peppers; cook 1 minute. Spoon turkey mixture into a bowl.

Recoat pan with cooking spray; return pan to medium-high heat. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and mushrooms to pan; sauté 5 minutes. Stir in peas; cook 1 minute. Stir in turkey mixture; cook 3 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Cover and set aside.

Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add gnocchi to pan; cook just until gnocchi begin to float. Drain gnocchi, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Combine turkey mixture, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/2 cup cooking liquid, and gnocchi in a large bowl; toss well. Sprinkle with cheese and basil. Serve warm.
