Tonight I was a hero. :) The bf and I have recently discovered gnocchi and I needed something I could throw together quickly after getting home late and this definitely fit the bill. I do have to admit that I used ready made pesto, but the addition of the broiled cherry tomatoes and fresh parmesan was fabulous. Very filling and healthy to boot! Thanks, Dale!
