creamy parmesan garlic gnocchi
NOTE: Many people haven’t been able to find Progresso Recipe Starters to use in the recipe. See this post for an UPDATED version of this recipe with a homemade sauce!
It’s a small travesty that I hadn’t caught onto the one-pan/one-pot phenomenon sooner. But now that I have, it’s pretty obvious I’m in love with it. But how can you not be, when it’s a) less clean-up #WIN, b) quick and easy #DOUBLEWIN and c) made with a small number of ingredients #SOMUCHWINIT’SRIDICULOUS?
And that is the last time I will speak in hashtag. #Promise.
This one-pan creamy Parmesan garlic gnocchi is one such meal that isn’t leaving our regular dinner menu rotation any time soon — not only because it covers all of the aforementioned perks of the one-pan/one-pot meal, but also because it’s so incredibly delicious. (I want to add something here in hashtag SO BAD right now but I will spare you).
Have you had a chance to try out Progresso‘s Recipe Starter pouches yet? If not, get thee to the grocery store and pick some up! They come in a variety of flavors, each of them a major boon to your favorite classic recipes or new ones, too. This recipe uses the creamy roasted garlic starter and it just makes the dish. And apart from that sauce, this meal is made with white beans, kale, Parmesan cheese and gnocchi. AND THAT’S IT. Gotta love when that happens.
I will say that if you want to add chopped rotisserie chicken or ham or cooked shrimp (or bacon?? yesssssss) to the dish, I am in full support, as we have done that from time to time when making it. But we’ve also made it sans meat and it’s just as filling, satisfying and yummy that way. Just let your heart — er, belly — decide.
Extra sprinkles of Parmesan cheese are also encouraged. I don’t even feel like I need to explain why.
With the amount of times we’ve made this dish, I think I’ve made up for lost time on the whole one-pan/one-pot thing. But I’ll be making this again tonight just to be sure.

This looks amazing! Gnocchi and a one pot meal – perfect! BTW – hashtag away 😉
Creamy is right! This looks awesome!! Definitely need to add this to a weeknight meal!
I love everything about this soup! This needs to happen in my kitchen soon! Pinned!
Wow this looks so goood…. I might be in warmer weather however I would go through the heat for a taste.
I soooo need to get on the one-pot train! Love this easy dinner idea…gnocchi is the way to my heart!
I am loving the looks of this. SO creamy! 🙂
I was late to the one-pot crazy too, better late than never though, right?! This looks SO good Stepanie! I’ve been on a gnocchi and kale kick lately, so this fits right into my diet. 🙂 I’m thinking it would even be perfect as a soup if I added a little bit of chicken stock!
It’s been such a long time since I have had gnocchi. I must fix this.
This looks awesome. I never make gnocchi anything at home, but it’s so easy and so, so good.
Super idea on how to take a short cut and make a fast, healthy dinner. Those beans look divine! Welcome to the one-pan train!
#Sogood! Adding bacon is always a great idea, but I probably inhale a big bowl of this as is 😉
I want this whole pot to myself. I’m not sharing.
I was prepared to scroll down and be totally overwhelmed by the ingredients list…such a pleasant surprise to see how easy this is!!! Need to try it, that sauce sounds majorly delicious. Pinned!
I want a bowl RIGHT NOW! So creamy and delish! Pinned!
