Lunch: Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Gnocchi January 5, 2011

Whole wheat sweet potato gnocchi with peas and fresh red cabbage, topped with marinara sauce and a pinch of Italian Asiago and fresh sage

Sweet and Savory

For lunch today I tried to put together a new combination of flavors with an emphasis on including vegetable variety: whole wheat sweet potato gnocchi (found in the pasta aisle), frozen peas, fresh red cabbage, Italian shredded asiago, marinara sauce, and fresh sage.

The ingredients paired very well together and the lunch was very simple and quick to prepare. While I waited for the water to boil, I rinsed and cut the cabbage and sage, and assembled the remaining ingredients. When the water boiled, I put in the gnocchi and peas and allowed these to cook for about 3 minutes. I strained the water from the cooked ingredients and mixed in the cabbage and marinara sauce. After 30 seconds in the microwave the sauce was hot and ready to top with a pinch of asiago and fresh sage.
