20 Minute Meal

Sometimes you only have a short amount of time to get a meal together. If I am really in a pinch, I go for a simple pasta dish. There’s nothing better than homemade gnocchi, but when in doubt head out and buy the best quality prepared gnocchi you can. I love to boil the gnocchi and when they are soft, I sauté then in brown butter. What a difference it makes and elevates a very simple food. I recently topped some brown butter gnocchi with a very rustic ratatouille, made from farm fresh zucchini and summer squash, beautiful tomatoes and eggplant, garlic, onions, peppers, and oregano. Stewed together and finished with fresh grated parmesan and basil. The combination of brown butter and tomato based sauce is out of this world and I would recommend you try it with any pasta dish.

Cheers
