Portobello Gnocchi Salad

Pan sauteing the gnocchi eliminates the need to boil them, while creating a wonderful tasty crispy coating on them. The baby bellas lend a real earthiness to this Italian-influenced salad.—Fran Fehling, Staten Island, New York

    We eat gnocchi a lot and it never occurred to me to use it in a salad. This was very, very good.
