This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Alessi, authentic Italian Products imported from Italy and produced by an Italian (Sicilian) family. Alessi sent me a ton of products to try out. Organic pasta, marinara sauce, and lots of balsamic reduction sauces, even chocolate and raspberry.
I made an awesome baked ziti and risotto, but I had never cooked gnocchi before. I decided to turn my traditional spinach and artichoke dip into an easy dinner bake with gnocchi.
Creamy Spinach and Artichoke Gnocchi
1 pkg. Alessi Potato Gnocchi
1 pkg. Frozen Chopped Spinach, thawed and drained
1 can Artichoke Hearts, drained and chopped
1/2 pt. Heavy Whipping Cream
16 oz. Cream Cheese
8 oz. Mozzarella Cheese
6 oz. Parmesan Cheese
16 oz. Cottage Cheese
Seasoning: Garlic Salt, Garlic Powder, Black Pepper, and a small amount of Cayenne Pepper.
Once you have softened your cream cheese, and prepped your spinach and artichokes, begin adding all of your ingredients into a large bowl.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook gnocchi until it begins to float. It should only take a minute or two. Don’t overcook them.
Add cooked gnocchi with the spinach, artichokes, whipping cream, cream cheese, mozzarella, parmesan, and cottage cheese. Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl.
I add extra garlic salt on top before baking. You can either cook it or freeze it at this time.
Bake in a 350 degree oven, uncovered for 20 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve with Alessi Rosemary Breadsticks.
