How to make Creamy Vegan Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Gnocchi

Rather than going the traditional pesto pasta route, I decided to switch it up with pillowy, delicious gnocchi.

If you have never had gnocchi before, then stop what you are doing and go get some immediately!

You don’t know what you’re missing out on.

These little guys are simple potato dumplings that are seriously comforting and filling.

You’ve seen me use them before in my Brown Butter Gnocchi with Fresh Herbs and Creamy Gnocchi Soup.

And I cannot get enough of them – especially as we enter fall and cold weather calls for comforting & warm meals.

In addition to the gnocchi, we’re making this extra comforting by transforming the fresh pesto into a creamy delicious sauce.

Just a couple extra ingredients take this sauce from great to out of this world. And did I mention this all comes together in just 20 minutes! This is sure to be one of your new favorite weeknight meals.

*Many brands of gnocchi are vegan by nature, but if you are having trouble finding one, you can find one here and here.
