directions

  • To make the pesto, combine the basil, pinenuts and garlic in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth. With the motor running, slowly pour in the oil. Add the parmesan and process until smooth.
  • Heat the oil in a small pan. Add the garlic and cook over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the cream and 3 tablesspoons of the pesto and bring to the boil. Be careful as it will boil over easily. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook the gnocchi according to the packet instructions. Drain and place the gnocchi in a large bowl. Pour on the sauce and toss thoroughly. Season with salt and pepper and stir through the lemon juice just before serving.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish with basil and serve with lemon wedges.

    This is definitely family fav! My guests have loved it too and have requested the recipe every time. I make the pesto ahead and freeze it in 3 TBS portions. It makes it a quick and easy meal that everyone loves! Thank you Jewelies!

    This recipe was delicious! I didn't have the means to make fresh pesto, so I had to buy mine. I will need to try it again making it fresh!

    I made half a recipe for the two of us and oh how wonderful. We will be having this many, many times again. Served with chicken schnitzel for a great meal.

    This was very yummy but rich! I found I didn't need anywhere near as much cream, but I might have made more pesto than required as I didn't really measure the basil, just used the whole bunch. Will make again, thanks!
