Creamy cauliflower and gnocchi casserole


Gnocchi, gnocchi. Who’s there? Your dinner!

What’s the best weekday dinner after a day of hussling? The quick and easy kind. The kind that is not a ready made meal, but only takes you about as long to prepare as ripping a pre-packed dish open. Girl, I got your back. This only takes 5 minutes of your time and from then on it essentially continues to prepare itself while baking in the oven. This is what I call a winner.

While the gnocchi ensure that no one feels hungry 30 minutes after dinner, the main act of this dish might actually be cauliflower. Cauliflower has recently been labeled a “superfood” as it is high in fiber as well as vitamins B and C. So while it looks pretty unimpressive and bland, it is actually full of healthy stuff. If you wanna gnocchi yourself out completely, make the dish even more cauliflower-y by using cauliflower gnocchis from Target instead of the standard potato version.
