Gnocchi with Quick Meat Sauce

Recipe photo courtesy of Andrew Purcell

This hearty meal is ready in just 30 minutes. Store-bought gnocchi (Italian for "dumplings") cook in just a few minutes, so they're faster than pasta. You'll have extra meat sauce left over to make Summer Beef-and-Rice Casserole later in the week.

    Unfortunately, this sauce was not quick to make. It took me almost 30 minutes to shred the carrots.The sauce was extremely plain and had no taste to it. I had to dump lots of cheese for flavor. I would not recommend this recipe. Sorry Martha!

    Cannot print recipe? Finding new website design not so helpful. Do not like popups blocking the info I am looking at. Disappointing.

      I find the pop-ups to be irritating too. I don't print anymore. I copy and paste into an email to myself. Then I have a recipe on my phone I can refer to for shopping. I also use it when I'm cooking.

    My gnocchi didn't seem like it cooked long enough and I had more sauce for some reason, couldn't use all the canned tomatoes. Used about a can and a half. Meat sauce was really good. Looking forward to using in the other recipe which was the main reason I made it. I love everyday food and the videos.
