Balsamic Baked Gnocchi with Parmesan and Brussels Sprouts

30 January, 2021

Have you ever tried baking gnocchi? It crisps up on the outside and stays soft and pillowy on the inside and – bonus- when you use frozen gnocchi, as this recipe calls for, you don’t even have to thaw it first!

If you’d like to make things even faster, skip slicing the sprouts and grab a bag or shaved brussels sprouts from your produce aisle; it’s often stored alongside the prepared coleslaw mix.
