Now that the busy holiday season is beginning, you might be like me, and looking for some quick, easy and TASTY meals. Why not try this Gnocchi, Cauliflower and Arugula Skillet? Topped with some bacon, toasted pine nuts, and capers, this is one dish you'll be having seconds of. 😋 :
Gnoccci, Cauliflower and Arugula Skillet
1 package plain gnocchi
1 head cauliflower florets
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 package bacon
3 - 5 garlic cloves, smashed then thinly sliced
2 tablespoons capers, drained
salt and pepper, to taste
2 or 3 tablespoons toasted pine nuts
4 cups arugula (or, if that is a bit too bitter, 2 cups arugula and 2 cups spinach)
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Place gnocchi, cauliflower florets, garlic and olive oil on cookie sheet. Toss together. Season with salt and pepper. Roast, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly browned, 30 to 35 minutes.
Meanwhile, dice and cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon to a paper towel lined bowl, keeping the drippings in the skillet (if your bacon was especially fatty, remove some of the drippings - just make sure to leave 2 or 3 tablespoons of drippings in the pan). Add roasted cauliflower, gnocchi, garlic, capers, pine nuts, arugula and balsamic vinegar in skillet. Sauté, stirring frequently, until arugula is slightly wilted. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed.
