This Creamy Baked Vegan Gnocchi is the ultimate comfort meal - creamy, saucy and a whole lotta tasty.
I know, I know, it's technically still summer, but I couldn't wait another second to share this creamy, baked pasta dish that just screams FALL!
This casserole is filled with a creamy white wine sauce, wilted kale and chunky bites of gnocchi. Do you really need to hear anything else? You should be running to the store to get the ingredients, now...like, NOW!
Ok, I'll tell you some more - just in case you aren't quite sold.
If you have every made my Creamy White Wine Vegan Gnocchi before, then you are already pretty familiar with this recipe. The sauce is super similar. But this recipe makes the sauce even better because when you bake it, the top and sides get a nice brown crunch that is to die for.
And because it is almost Fall I felt like we needed to add a hearty green to the mix. Because you know...health.
I went with kale, but you can totally swap it out for spinach or chard.
Now here are some reasons you are going to love this Creamy Vegan Baked Gnocchi:
- It is quick to make.
- Decedent without requiring a ton of work.
- Totally creamy and comforting.
So without further ado, let's get cooking.
