Gnocchi with Creamy Pesto and Cherry Tomatoes

  • Prep Time 0:05
  • Cook Time 0:05
  • Estimated Cost $15.00

Toothsome gnocchi is the perfect bed for this creamy pesto. I like to serve it with a big green salad and hot, crusty bread for soaking up the remaining sauce.


  • 1 12-oz package gnocchi $3
  • 1/2 cup fresh pesto $8.50 for entire recipe
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved $2
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half $1.50 for 1/2 pint

Recipe Serves 2-3


  1. Cook gnocchi according to directions in salted water. In a small pot, whisk together pesto and half-and-half over medium heat until well incorporated and hot.
  2. Once gnocchi is cooked, toss gently with the creamy pesto and cherry tomatoes. Garnish with leftover pine nuts and Parmesan if desired.

very good and simple-used tortellini instead of gnocchi and grape tomatoes instead of cherry.

…where in the world do you find gnocchi for $3? In 12-oz packages especially?

Really yummy! I didn’t have a small pot so mixed the pesto and milk in a small bowl and heated it up in the microwave for 20 second increments until heated. It worked very well. Thank you for the wonderful recipe. :)
