Beet Gnocchi with Walnut Pesto!!
This beet gnocchi with walnut pesto has a delicious flavor. The gnocchi is sweet by itself, and the pesto compliments it so well. It has a similar texture to fresh pasta, light, soft and just a little bit chewy.
Mmmmmm, gnocchi. In case you don’t know, gnocchi is an Italian dish similar to pasta, but made out of potatoes. It is a traditional Italian-grandma style recipe. This gnocchi also contains beet, giving it a sweeter more robust flavor.
As a note, I bought the stripey beets instead of the dark purple ones, so my gnocchi turned out more of a pinkish, salmon color versus a deep red. They are, however, still absolutely delicious.
While this definitely isn’t the fastest recipe, it’s absolutely delicious! Rolling out the gnocchi is lots of fun for kids too!
