Easy dinner recipe: gnocchi with pink sauce

Please share!

I can always count on potato gnocchi with pink sauce when I need the easiest dinner recipe when I’m too tired to cook anything too complicated.

You won't believe how easy it is to make gnocchi with pink sauce. It's a foolproof recipe that you can make with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.I do use premade potato gnocchi that I get at the supermarket, Amazon or Target, but I know many friends make their own pasta. The great thing about vacuum-sealed gnocchi is that most brands don’t need refrigeration, so you can stock up and keep them in your pantry. 

If you’re not a fan of tomato-based sauces, you can always substitute the pink sauce for a white one or a creamy Alfredo (made with parmesan cheese and butter) sauce.
