  • 1 16-oz package of gnocchi
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp minced garlic

  8. Once cheese is completely melted, season with salt and pepper. Pour cheese mixture over gnocchi and bake in oven for 15 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Return to oven for 10 minutes or until top is a light golden brown.
  10. Fry basil and pat dry. Use to garnish.
