Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (199 votes)

The gnocchi cooks right in the skillet, along with shrimp, shallots, asparagus and Parmesan cheese, in this gnocchi recipe. Look for shelf-stable gnocchi near other pasta. Serve with baby arugula salad with vinaigrette and a glass of pinot grigio.

Fantastic quick meal for a weeknight

This meal was amazing. The only reason it didn't get top marks was because I made some additions to create a stronger flavor profile. I added some red pepper flakes and basil at the same time I added the shrimp. I did end up using Trader Joe's frozen grilled asparagus instead of fresh, but followed everything else to the letter. I will definitely add this into the recipe rotation!

Quick, delicious
We loved it!

I followed the recipe except that I used basil gnocchi from Cost Plus World Market and garlic olive oil. I made it for company having never made it before and everyone loved it.

Easy to fix, nice and light
Add to your weeknight reptile.

I substituted green beans for the asparagus because it's summer! I added a generous tablespoon of fresh basil, a pinch of red pepper flakes, cooked the beans a bit longer than suggested for the asparagus, tossed in 1/4 cup white wine near the end with the gnocchi. The added liquid made the gnocchi quite tender. Easy excellence.

Quick, very little prep
Even my 7-year old loved it!

Sounds kinda odd, but really good. Everyone cleaned their plates! I served it with a side salad.

Whole family liked it
