There are so many recipes for gnocchi, yet this is a true stand-out. Creamy Potato Gnocchi Recipe with Grilled Asparagus and Grapefruit. This combination makes a fabulous winter-to-spring transitional dish.
It’s a tad bit cold outside, but I’ve gone as long as I can without grilling. This week the grill cover came off! I stood out on my deck, shivering, with grill tongs in hand.
It was a worthwhile adventure. I made a discovering I want to share with you.
So good, I had to give it a fancy font.
Maybe you saw me share it on Instagram last week?
I figured, I’ve grilled every other fruit and vegetable, why not grapefruit? The results were divine.
Grilling grapefruit wedges brings the natural sweetness forward (so no need for a sprinkle of sugar) and makes the flavor really pop in your mouth.
After trying this, I knew I needed to come up with a dish that allowed the grilled grapefruit to shine, like a Gnocchi Recipe with Grilled Asparagus.
So I paired my grapefruit wedges with DeLallo Potato Gnocchi, lightly kissed with cream sauce and tossed with a spring favorite, grilled asparagus.
Grilled asparagus offers that fresh springy feel to this gnocchi recipe, and the grilled grapefruit brings an acidic tang, almost like adding white wine to the cream sauce… but better.
The combination of the pillowy gnocchi, the rich cream sauce, and the grilled asparagus and grapefruit wedges is mind-boggling.
You will die.
Serve each bowl of creamy Gnocchi Recipe with Grilled Asparagus with a wedge or two of grilled grapefruit. Either squeeze the juice over the pasta, or enjoy biting the grapefruit wedges in between bites of pasta and asparagus.
If you are still holding onto rich hearty winter dishes, but itching for spring, this gnocchi recipe is for you!
