When I want a quick dinner, I always think of pasta, rice or couscous. For some strange reason I never think of gnocchi! Well no more. This gorgeously tempting One Pot Ham & Cheese Gnocchi has definitely won me over. It’s filling, it’s tasty & it’s all made in just one pot. Erm, yeah, where do I sign??
Here is what you will need to serve 2 – 3.
(Recipe adapted from Kevin & Amanda)
- 1 tbsp Olive Oil
- 1/2 Onion, finely chopped
- 150g Ham, chopped *
- 300ml Chicken Stock
- 500g Pack of Gnocchi
- 75g Frozen Peas
- 30ml Milk
- Salt & Pepper
- 50g Cheddar Cheese, grated
* You will need either a good, thick cut ham or a ham joint that you can slice yourself.Essential Equipment
- Large Non Stick Frying Pan with a Lid
First off, prep your ingredients. Get that onion finely sliced, the ham chopped into thick pieces & the cheese grated.
Preheat your grill ready to melt the cheese later & get the frying pan set over a medium heat.
When the pan is hot, add in the oil, swill it around a little then add the onion. Fry for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and turning golden brown.
Add the ham to the pan and fry for another 2 minutes.
Add in the gnocchi & frozen peas, give it a stir then cover & simmer for 5 minutes.
Check the gnocchi is tender, if it is, pour in the milk and season to taste with salt & pepper. If not, pop the lid back on for another minute or two then add the milk & seasoning.
Scatter over the grated cheese and place under the preheated grill for 5 – 10 minutes until golden and bubbling.
Divide between 2 or 3 plates & dig in immediately!
I definitely think ham & cheese gnocchi will become a household staple with me, it makes a really delightful change from the same old meals I tend to stick to. Let’s face it, we’re all a bit guilty of that aren’t we?! I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time!
