Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons julienned sun-dried tomatoes (I used the kind packed in oil)
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine e.g. sauvignon blanc
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 1 pound uncooked potato gnocchi
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Generous handful fresh basil sliced thin
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  • In a skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. 
  • Add the garlic to the skillet and cook for 30 seconds. 
  • Stir in the Dijon mustard, sun-dried tomatoes, and white wine. Cook for 2 minutes. 
  • Add the cream and gnocchi to the pan. Give it a good stir and cover the pan. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for 5 minutes. 
  • Stir in the parmesan and basil. Cook for a couple more minutes. Give the gnocchi a taste and if it's not quite done cooking, give it a couple more minutes. Season with salt & pepper as needed. Serve immediately. 

Notes

  • The gnocchi will cook right in the sauce. There's no need to pre-cook it. 
  • Makes 4 reasonably sized portions (but I'd add a side salad or garlic bread or something if you're feeding really hungry people). Easily feeds more as a side. 
  • If you don't want to use white wine for whatever reason, try subbing chicken broth. If you have to keep it vegetarian, veggie broth will work too.
  • This dish doesn't reheat very well (the sauce tends to separate). I suggest eating it fresh.
