Recipe: Gnocchi with pesto and roasted peppers

Pasta with aromatic herbs
May 27, 2009


I will harvest basil soon, and then I will enjoy the first pesto of the season. Pesto can be freezed easily: it will loose some flavour, but you can eat it in the winter too!
With the last pesto of the last summer, I cooked some gnocchi with an interesting variation.
