Crispy Sheet Pan Gnocchi and Veggies

A package of gnocchi from the store has always been one of our favorite easy dinners, but now it just got a whole lot easier. That’s because we discovered you don’t even actually have to boil the gnocchi in order to make it for dinner. Toss them directly from the package onto a sheet pan with a slew of veggies, roast them for 20 minutes, scoop into bowls, and dig in. Seriously — that’s it. It’s a game-changing way to make a go-to weeknight meal even more of a win.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 pound fresh, shelf-stable, or frozen potato gnocchi
  • 1 (12-ounce) bag mixed baby bell peppers (or 2 medium bell peppers), cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes
  • 1 small red onion, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 1 teaspoon coarsely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh basil leaves
  • Grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesan cheese, for serving


INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 450°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place the gnocchi, peppers, tomatoes, onion, garlic, rosemary, salt, and a few generous grinds of black pepper in a large bowl. Drizzle with the oil and gently toss to combine. Spread the gnocchi mixture out evenly on the prepared baking sheet.
