Ingredients:

Gnocchi: Despite gnocchi being categorized in the pasta category, it’s actually made with potatoes and entirely gluten-free. You can usually find it in the pasta aisle of most grocery stores.

Oyster Mushrooms: A popular type of mushroom linked to several health benefits. They are highly nutritious and promote heart and immune health.

How to make mushroom gnocchi:

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook gnocchi according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water and set aside.
  2. Add butter to a medium-sized frying pan over medium heat. Once melted, add onion, garlic and salt and pepper. Cook until onion is softened, about 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add the mushrooms and cook down until mushrooms are soft and tender, about 5-6 minutes, stir occasionally.
  4. Pour in the white wine to deglaze, stir and cook until almost evaporated.
  5. Stir in the cream and fresh thyme, simmer for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Add in 1/4 cup pasta water, truffle sauce and shredded parmesan cheese. Stir to combine and cook for about 1-2 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning with more salt and pepper. If the sauce is too thick, add more pasta water to create a sauce consistency to your liking.
  7. Serve topped with more fresh thyme, shredded parmesan cheese and ground pepper.

Expert Tips & FAQ:

Truffle Sauce: If you don’t have truffle sauce, try substituting with truffle oil or truffle salt – just note you will need to adjust the amount used to your taste. Start with 1 tsp and then go from there.

Mushrooms: If you can’t find oyster mushrooms you could try using cremini or brown mushrooms.
