Clean Eating Gnocchi With Chicken And Marinara Recipe

I have a new love in my life. That new love is called Gnocchi. Not just any gnocchi, homemade gnocchi. There are few things I wouldn’t do for a plate of good, homemade gnocchi.

This was my first time making it and I have to say the process took a little figuring out. But once I had a system in place, it all went pretty smoothly!

Gnocchi can be a little time consuming to make, but I wasn’t in the kitchen for more than an hour, so I’m good with that. The first time you make this (if you haven’t made it before) give yourself that extra time knowing that every time thereafter will go much, much faster. But I promise you, it’s worth it!

  • 6 cups gnocchi

  • 6 medium garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2 tsp. oil
  • fresh basil (chopped for garnish)

  3. After eating lots of frozen gnocchi growing up, I recently had some homemade at a restaurant that was amazing, so when I came across this recipe I had to try it and of course make the gnocchi myself! Even though it took three hours it was pretty amazing! I can’t wait for lunch tomorrow so I can have leftovers!! Thank you!!

  5. Yum! I made this last fall and it was amazing. I recently found out that I’m allergic to white potatoes, so I’m going to try this same recipe but with the sweet potato gnocchi recipe. I hope it is just as tasty 🙂
