  • 1 package frozen cauliflower gnocchi from Trader Joe's
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
  • 6 crimini mushrooms, chopped (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • 4-6 slices prosciutto , chopped
  • fresh thyme leaves, for serving


  • In a non-stick pan, heat 2 tbs. olive oil. Add frozen gnocchi and cook for 2 or so minutes per side or until golden. Season with salt and pepper while they cook. When done cooking, remove them from pan and set aside.
  • In the same pan over medium low heat, add minced garlic, shallot and chopped mushrooms. Cook until soft, about 3 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl combine the whisked eggs and the grated parmesan cheese. Mixture will be thick!
  • Add the chicken stock to the pan then turn off the heat. Slowly pour in egg/cheese mixture, using a spoon to stir and create your sauce. Mix for 1-1.5 minutes, then add gnocchi back to pan, along with the diced prosciutto, and continue to stir to coat.
  • Top everything with fresh thyme leaves and more parmesan!
