Gorgonzola Gnocchi With Pancetta And Shaved Brussels Sprouts - Dash Of Mandi

It’s very clear that I’m a huge Trader Joe’s fan. It’s by far my favorite grocery store. Even if they had a grocery delivery service, I wouldn’t use it. Going there once (or 2-3 times 😅) is my happy alone time. Strolling up and down each aisle and checking out what new goodies they have is so fun to me. I know it sounds kind of crazy, but it is what it is.

In addition to loving this store. I also love their frozen gnocchi selection. The cauliflower gnocchi is my go-to because it’s a healthier and versatile option. Click here for my guide to good cauliflower gnocchi. It gives you my three fool-proof methods for cooking it. As well as my favorite recipes using it!

I also love the sweet potato gnocchi. Click here for my easy sheet pan dinner using it! I’ve also tried their kale gnocchi and chocolate gnocchi. The chocolate gnocchi is pretty good. But, I was not a fan of the kale one. On my Instagram page – my husband and I did a video sampling out the kale gnocchi, gorgonzola and stuffed gnocchi! We absolutely loved the gorgonzola gnocchi. It’s hard to believe it’s frozen. The flavors are amazing.

After trying it I knew I had to create an easy dinner with it. This three ingredient dinner could not be easier. But, it feels so fancy. It would make a great at home Valentine’s Day dinner paired with some wine 😉

Easy Dinner Using Trader Joe's Gorgonzola Gnocchi

I got the bagged shaved brussels sprouts and used half the bag. You can definitely use the whole bag too! I used the whole entire 4 oz. container of pancetta. The combo was simply delicious! Creamy gorgonzola sauce, soft pillow-y gnocchi, crispy pancetta and shaved brussels sprouts. So good!

Also, you will need olive oil and some pepper! But, I consider those pantry staples.

    Can you sub this with cauliflower gnocchi and heavy cream?

      Amanda Hickman

      I would also add some parmesan or something! I don’t think it’ll have enough flavor with just the heavy cream since the gorgonzola gives a lot of flavor.


    Such a great easy meal! I used bacon instead of pancetta and it turned out delicious!


    Delicious, this was super easy and fast to make!


    Hi! do you need any sauce for the gnocchi or is the gnocchi flavorful enough?

      Amanda Hickman

      you do not need sauce! it comes with the gorgonzola sauce on it which is flavorful enough 🙂


    FAmily loved it! I minced ham steak instead since my family doesnt like PaNCetta. Will definitely make again!


    I love the same foods you do and I have always said- an hour or more walking up and down the aisles at Trader Joes….is my happy place also!
