this dish combines crispy skillet gnocchi with the delicious flavors of a caprese salad and even throws a little extra veggies in! perfect on its own or as a delicious side


  • 1 12 oz. package skillet gnocchi (I used Rana)
  • 1 medium zucchini, washed and quartered
  • 1/2 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/22/3 cup fresh mozzarella balls, halved
  • Olive oil (or butter)
  • Balsamic glaze
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil, chopped


  1. Cook gnocchi according to package instructions
  2. Once gnocchi is cooked, remove and set aside.  Add a drizzle of olive oil to the same pan (no need to wipe it out!) followed by zucchini and tomatoes.  Sprinkle with salt & pepper and sauté over medium heat, stirring frequently, until just tender (about 4-5 minutes)
  3. Add gnocchi back into the pan, give it one last toss over the heat (for about 30 seconds) then pour everything into a large serving bowl, top with fresh mozzarella, more salt & pepper as desired, a drizzle of olive oil and balsamic glaze and fresh chopped basil
