Gnocchi Cheese Bake

Gnocchi Cheese Bake

Typically I would make a dish like this for dinner, but Jeremy and I had quite the appetite for lunch and I figured- why not!?  If you enjoy cheese or carbs, THIS is for you!!

First, preheat your oven to 400 degrees and bring a large pot of water to a boil.  Once your water is boiling, add 2 packages of potato gnocchi (potato, pasta like dumplings) to the water and watch for them to rise.

Once the gnocchi starts to rise to the top of the water, remove the pan from the heat and drain the water.

Lightly grease an ovenproof dish and place your gnocchi in the dish.

Scatter 2-3 tbsp of butter on top ...

then sprinkle 1-2 tbsp of fresh parsley on top as well.

Lay shredded mozzarella and provolone on top of your buttered and seasoned gnocchi.  The amount of cheese you use is completely to your preference.  I used about 1 c of mozzarella and 6 slices of provolone.  When your cheese has been placed, top with pepper.

Place in your oven for about 15-20 minutes.  When the top begins to turn a golden color it is ready!

Serve once it has cooled a few moments and enjoy!
