Kale and carrot gnocchi

I love kale! So lately I’ve been trying to think outside of the Kale Pasta box… Here is my first attempt.

Kale and Carrot Gnocchi (Serves 4-6)

Ingredients:
1-2 bunches kale
2-3 large carrots, diced
1 Package of gnocchi, fresh or freeze dried
4 Tb Olive oil
2 cloves garlic (I use dorot, frozen crushed garlic from Trader Joes!)
Salt
Pepper
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1) Prepare gnocchi according to package directions.

2) While the pasta is cooking, heat olive oil and garlic in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat. Rinse the kale under cold water in a colander. Shake off excess water and place in pan. Add carrots and then add salt and pepper to taste and cover pan so the kale can wilt.

3) Once the kale is cooked down, add the diced tomato and cook for a minute. Add Parmesan, more olive oil (if desired) and cooked gnocchi. Enjoy!
