Store-bought gnocchi is pretty much the perfect food because it goes so well with any cooked vegetables and can be made in one saucepan--no waiting for a separate pot of water to come to a boil. We love the combination with mushrooms (which is even easier when you start with our big-batch Meal-Prep Roasted Mushrooms). The Parmesan, butter and olive oil come together into a rich and creamy sauce--all in less than 15 minutes.



  1. Put 1 1/2 cups water and a pinch of salt in a large saucepan or high-sided skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat and immediately add the gnocchi. Cover and cook until tender.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter, olive oil and 2 teaspoons black pepper. Add the Parmesan and mushrooms and stir until the mushrooms are heated through and the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes, returning to low heat if needed. Top with the chives and drizzle with more olive oil. Serve with Parmesan on the side.
