Gnocchi Primavera provides all the ingredients you need for a quick, weeknight dinner. Use frozen gnocchi to whip up this one-dish meal in minutes!

How to Make It

Step 1

Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Place asparagus in a bowl with 2 Tbsp. water; microwave on high until tender, 3 to 4 minutes.

Step 2

Melt butter with oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, garlic and 1/2 tsp. salt and sauté until mushrooms have given off most of their liquid, about 8 minutes. Add tomatoes and sauté until softened, about 3 minutes longer. Stir in peas, cream and broth, bring to a simmer, and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

Step 3

Cook gnocchi in boiling water until they float, about 5 minutes for frozen and 2 minutes for shelf-stable, or as package label directs. Drain and add to vegetable mixture, along with asparagus. Stir in Parmesan and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper, sprinkle with basil and serve immediately.

The sauce was good but far too runny to infuse the pasta with enough flavor. Aside from the taste of the vegetables, this recipe came out rather bland.

I too had the same question about the vege broth. I did add it along with the cream it turned out very good but a little runny. The flavor of the broth was worth the runny sauce. I emailed allyou to clarify the recipe but never got a response. Very disappointed in all you for not responding. We don't like asparagus so I left it out. Since the sauce was more runny, I used extra gnocchi and almost doubled the size of the recipe.

This was delicious! However, the broth in the ingredient list never appeared in the recipe. I didn't add it and it didn't need it. I substituted Baby Bellas for the button mushrooms, as they are more flavorful. Will definitely make again!

I saw this in the latest issue of All You and wanted to give it a try. It was perfect! it was so easy to make and was really quick. Dinner was on the table in under 15 mins and it was filling.
