GNOCCHI IN CITRUS SPINACH BUTTER SAUCE

 

  • Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 2
  • Preparation Time: 30

Ingredients

  • 1/2 recipe gnocchi from Jamie Oliver's book: "Cook with Jamie" (or double recipe below if using a full recipe of gnocchi.)
  • zest from 1/2 fresh lemon
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • about 15 leaves baby spinach, chopped (reserve about 7-10 very small leaves, whole, for garnish)
  • 3/4 cup vegetable stock
  • additional salt to taste (optional)
  • Parmesan cheese curls for garnish (optional)

Directions

  • I have always wanted a great gnocchi recipe and requested & received Jamie Oliver's new book: "Cook with Jamie" for my birthday. I created this sauce to accompany a modified version of Jamie Oliver's gnocchi recipe "a basic recipe for the lighted potato gnocchi" (modifications included the use of freshly ground whole wheat flour in place of white flour.)
  • He also had a wonderful recipe, similar to this sauce, but I was unable to find the key ingredient, and it had a lot of butter. This is my modified version of that as well.
