Tonight’s invention WILL be shared but not recommended. If anyone out there can “fix” this dish, please share. Well, to be honest it was voted 2 for and 1 against. I had bought some whole wheat gnocchi with sweet potato filling with only a thought of what to do with it. I had planned to make a pumpkin soup as the base but, alas, the can of pumpkin must have been only a figment of my imagination. The instructions called for “your favorite sauce” but I didn’t have any in the pantry or time to fix it. But, I did have a can of diced tomatoes. With my immersion blender, I pureed the tomatoes, added Italian seasoning, salt, 1 Tablespoon of minced garlic, and about 3 oz of creamed cheese and heated. Then some grated parmesan cheese was mixed in. Now it was ready to add the cooked (according to directions) gnocchi. Served with parmesan on top.
Now I will say that the one who didn’t like the dish is not often willing to experiment and the other two did have seconds. I still want to make it with pumpkin soup with a dollop of sour cream on top, perhaps.
