Tender cauliflower gnocchi combine with a quick cream sauce, tender peas and flaky salmon for an unforgettable weeknight dinner. This one is so good you might make it for special occasions. If you don't like smoked salmon, use fresh.

I really enjoyed this recipe! Was a little nervous due to the other review but just couldn't understand how this mix of ingredients wouldn't be good. I modified slightly added a couple cloves of minced garlic and sauteed with the gnocchi and a squeeze of lemon at the end. Otherwise made as directed. Read More

I really had high hopes for this recipe as I'd just purchased the cauliflower gnocchi for the first time but this recipe just didn't taste good to us. We usually love to have leftovers for my husband's lunch and we didn't even bother -- just poured the remainder out. It felt like the cheese "sauce" was just too heavy for this recipe. A lighter cream sauce might have been better. I cooked the recipe exactly like the recipe except that I steamed the sugar snap peas instead of microwaving them and I used light cream cheese. Maybe this would be to someone else's tastes but it definitely was not to ours. Very disappointed. Read More
