Crispy Pesto Gnocchi with Tomatoes, Black Olives and Feta Cheese

Oh.My.WOW!! This stuff is *so* good! It tastes fancy ... but is so simple! I found the recipe at 1 Cup Awesome (adapted from Rachel Ray Magazine) and adjusted it to my family's tastes and preferences. It was a fantastic meatless meal - and we're already planning on making it again - soon!!! Seriously, pin this now!







Crispy Pesto Gnocchi with Tomatoes, Black Olives and Feta Cheese
Yield: 3-4 servings

A few swirls of olive oil
1 pkg. (16 oz.) potato gnocchi
1/2 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup prepared pesto sauce, more to taste
1/4 cup black olives, halved
Feta cheese, crumbled

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add gnocchi in a single layer and cook until browned, about 4-5 minutes. Turn gnocchi and cook, tossing occasionally, until browned to your taste. Add tomatoes and olives, cook for about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and add pesto and crumbled Feta. Stir. Serve immediately!

I hope you enjoy!
