My lovely little kitchen helper and I decided to cook dinner SUPER early so we could skip to the park and spend the entire afternoon playing instead.
And on the menu was a super simple supper of fried pea, spinach and ricotta gnocchi smothered in the most gorgeous and amazingly fragrant mint and pistachio pesto.
Thankfully, the processor does most of the heavy lifting in this recipe so apart from a little rolling and frying of dumplings there really isn’t much to do. I have to say though, Miss G. really did have the best (& very messy) fun shaping our little gnocchi – our kitchen floor and bench were a floury mess but seeing her so happy cooking dinner I didn’t mind one little bit.
I’m also happy to report the kids loved loved loved this supper, the fried gnocchi and much like our beloved spinach fritters so I had a sneak suspicion they would be a hit. Hopefully they will be at your place too!
