Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In the blender or food processor, blend together Basil Pesto (1/2 cup) and Kale (1 cup) until combined.
Step 2
Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil with a generous pinch of Salt (to taste) . Once boiling, add Gnocchi (2 lb) . Cook for about 3 minutes or according to package directions. Once done, transfer to a large bowl with a slotted spoon. Reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water, just in case you need to loosen the sauce later.
Step 3
Add kale pesto sauce and Grated Parmesan Cheese (1/2 cup) to the bowl with the gnocchi. Mix until combined (make sure to mix gnocchi with pesto while the gnocchi is still hot). If it thickens too much, add a splash of the pasta water to loosen.
Step 4
Sprinkle more parmesan on top if desired and serve. For a spicy kick, garnish with a few Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (to taste) .
