It took me under 10 minutes to get this mushroom gnocchi all on the table. I did use store bought pesto (and in this case it was a red pepper almond pesto) but by all means make it from scratch if you are up to it! Fresh pesto is crazy easy to make too and doesn’t take too long if you have all the ingredients already. Also the recipe that I adapted this from used arugula in it and I substituted it for a mxture of leaves since it what was available at the moment when I went shopping.
