Garden Vegetable Gnocchi

When we go meatless, we toss gnocchi (my husband's favorite) with veggies and a dab of pesto. I use zucchini in this, too. —Elisabeth Larsen, Pleasant Grove, Utah

    yummy I don't even like squash and I love this. I froze some and it is just as good out of the freezer.

    I haven't tried this yet. Also, I'm not a fan of squash. Nevertheless, I see no reason why I couldn't use different vegetables. The whole concept of the recipe is fabulous, in my opinion. I'm always looking for good meatless options, and I really like gnocchi. I will definitely give this a try. I have most of the makings for it already. Another pantry-friendly recipe!

    This was a huge hit with a group of vegetarians and non-vegetarians (few of whom had even tried gnocchi before). I doubled the recipe and they still scraped the pot clean. I used fresh basil, which definitely took the dish to another level. I also baked the vegetables as directed, with the exception of the mushrooms. Those I sautéed with a bit of extra pesto. It was flavorful and filling!

    This recipe is easy to make and tasty. I did not add the optional basil, so found it needed some spice. I would double the mushrooms next time. Overall, a good recipe for a meatless dish. Very filling.
