Gnocchi Picatta

This sauce though! Creamy, lemony, buttery and caper-y, studded with curly kale, caramelized onions and herbalicious chicken medallions. But there’s more! A sweet pepper and olive relish – the perfect topping for the pasta. So good. Leftover sauce? No prob. That’s what the focaccia is for – scooping it up! It’s basically a utensil, and an edible one at that. And remember our one and only rule – no crumb left behind on the focaccia. Can we get a yum yum? Let’s go.

What’s in your bag:

  • Potato gnocchi 
  • Piccata sauce 
  • Sweet pepper + olive relish
  • Housemade focaccia
  • Mixed greens salad
  • Sherry vinaigrette 

What you’ll need from home:

  • Large pot
  • Large pan
  • Butter
  • Strainer
  • Salt + pepper
  • Fresh cracked black pepper

Total prep time: 12 minutes


The Gnocchi Piccata

  1. Get a big pot of hot water on the stove, and season well with salt (salty water is good water). Bring it to a boil.
  2. While the water heats, grab a big pan and add a pat of butter. Put it over high heat til the butter bubbles.
  3. Slowly scoop the piccata sauce into the pan. Let it warm. 
  4. Back to the boiling water! Drop in the gnocchi and give them a stir to separate. Cook for two minutes – no more!
  5. Reserve a cup of pasta water and strain the gnocchi.
  6. Toss the gnocchi into the pan with the piccata sauce. Add a couple splashes of the reserved pasta water – it will help make your sauce epic!
  7. Cook the pasta water down until the sauce clings to the gnocchi, chicken and veggies. 
  8. Season with salt and fresh cracked black pepper. 

The Salad

  1. Add the mixed greens into a large bowl.
  2. Drizzle with sherry vinaigrette and season to taste with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Toss, toss, toss!

The Focaccia

  1. Toast it up in the oven or toaster oven.

Scoop the gnocchi piccata into an even layer in a shallow bowl, and add a few dollops of the relish on top. Put the salad in a side dish, grab some focaccia, and you’re in business! 


That’s it! Dinner solved, dinner served. #weareWECO
