Delicious and easy Cheeseburger Gnocchi Skillet is bursting with flavor and is healthy, too!
Eating healthy food is important to me, but so is eating good food.
I don’t believe to live a healthy life means you have to give up the foods you love. That’s why I love this Easy Cheeseburger Gnocchi Skillet.
A few years ago I had gnocchi for the first time. OH. MY. GOODNESS. If you have never heard of it please don’t let that stop you from making this recipe. I have a sneaky suspicion you are going to love it!
Is gnocchi pasta or a potato?
Gnocchi is a “dumpling” made from potato, semolina, or flour and they are like little pillows of amazing-ness. Seriously, my entire family loves gnocchi and I know you are going to as well.
This Easy Cheeseburger Gnocchi Skillet is quick to prepare and is bursting with flavor. Dare I say it might even be better heated up as leftovers the next day… if you have any left!
If you’ve never bought gnocchi before you can buy it at most grocery stores, and even Target (that’s where I got mine). It is found near the pasta.
It’s not a pasta, the kind I’m using for this recipe is made from potato, and it’s so easy to prepare.
You just put a little butter in the skillet, let it melt, then cook the gnocchi until it browns up! Then set it aside and prepare the rest of the meal and add it back in at the end to let it simmer and cook all the way through.
What I love about gnocchi is it is so versatile.
