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

It’s very clear that I’m a huge Trader Joe’s [3] 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 [4] 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 [5] 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 [6] – 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.
