Wonderful Quick Meal

I need a quick meal for dinner last night and made this for my husband and I. I had to substitute 1 yellow squash because that was what was available. I also tossed in some extra cheese. It was easy to make, with ingredients I had on hand, and my husband took the leftovers to work!

Quick, easy, tasty
Last night's dinner!

I used a vege peeler for the zucchini, so it was very delicate and should be added at the end just to blanch it. I also substituted gnocchi for scallops and added rice noodles. Very tasty!

yummy flavors

Good basis but needed something

The basic recipe was good and easy to throw together but lacked flavor. I added onion and garlic and cooked before adding the tomatoes and zucchini, and used lemon zest and half of a lemon and rosemary before serving. I think I used too much zucchini, I love this vegetable but not when its overpowering the dish, will make a second attempt.

easy, weeknight recipe

Yuk!

After adding the parmesan cheese, everything became very dry! And unfortunately, the frozen gnocchi's were very chewy and not tender at all. Such a simple recipe, but unfortunately my husband and I have given it thumbs down. Sorry!

Quickly came together

frozen gnocchi is yuck try

frozen gnocchi is yuck try the gnocchi from World Market (Cost Plus) store brand. Never fails so many raves whenever I use it in a recipe. You really need to follow directions on package for cooking gnocchi because if it is not cooked correctly it won't turn out good at all.

I doubt the frozen gnocchi

I doubt the frozen gnocchi being undercooked was the fault of the recipe. It does say to follow the directions on the packaging.

Great, but no ribbons

I cooked this exactly as described and my zucchini ribbons turned to mush! It still tasted delicious enough to give it another go but the next time I diced the zucchini instead.

easy, delicious, subtle flavor
