Caramelized Onion Gnocchi

This is the definition of comfort food.


Basically what I was trying to do here was create perogies in gnocchi form. Adventurous, right? Anyway, it didn’t quite work out exactly, but close…. and much more decadent.

I always have store-bought gnocchi in my pantry, but I never know what to do with it. I think it’s best in some brown butter, to be honest. But this time I wanted to try something new.

What do you do with store-bought gnocchi? Do you just use regular pasta sauce on it? I am curious.

I much prefer homemade gnocchi, specifically with ricotta, but I’ve only ever made it once. And I know I was supposed to blog about it… but a lack of decent photos meant I never actually did. One day!

This gnocchi recipe is decadent and rich. And delicious.

Yield: 4

Serving Size: Rachel Ray


1 pound gnocchi
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons butter
1 large onion, chopped
4 tsps minced garlic
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated


Heat butter and oil in large frying pan. Add onions and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, for about 20 minutes, until brown and caramelized. If the edges start to get too much color, just add a little water and stir it up. Cook the gnocchi and remove 1/4 cup of cooking liquid before draining. Add it to the pan of onions. Add the drained gnocchi and the cheese and toss to combine.
