Gnocchi with Grilled Chicken in Roasted Red Pepper Sauce

DeLallo Potato & Cheese Italian Gnocchi Kit contains everything you need to make fresh potato gnocchi in minutes. Just add water to the ready-to-use mix to create tasty Italian-style potato and cheese gnocchi. I love to keep a few packages in my pantry to add to soups and pasta dishes. Here I added some grilled chicken and whipped up an easy homemade roasted red pepper sauce.

To make the roasted red pepper sauce, I used jarred roasted red peppers, simmered with shallots, garlic, Pecorino Romano, and a touch of cream. It just couldn’t be any easier! This sauce would also be great on any other pasta, grilled chicken, fish, or grain bowls. For another roasted red pepper recipe, try my Roasted Red Pepper Soup.

How do you make gnocchi from scratch?

Making gnocchi from scratch is easier than you might think! DeLallo’s Gnocchi Kit saves a ton of time since you don’t have to prep any potatoes.

1. Add water to the DeLallo mixture and stir with a fork.
2. Knead the dough until it’s no longer sticky.
3. Put the dough on a lightly floured surface and form into a loaf shape.
4. Cut the dough into 1-inch strips, roll out to make long ropes, and then cut in 1-inch pieces.
5. If you’d like, you can press the back of the fork into each piece to create gnocchi’s signature ridges.
6. Put the gnocchi in boiling water, cook for 3-5 minutes, and then drain.

Variations:

  • Swap the spinach for Swiss chard
  • Sub shrimp or lobster for grilled chicken
