Cheesy Gnocci with Ham and Peas

We have been making some new recipes lately so for the next three days, I’ll share some of the best ones with you.

The first is a great, quick weeknight recipe and it would be a good way to use up some of those ham leftovers after Easter. (via Food Network)

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • One 8-ounce piece deli ham, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • One 17.5-ounce package potato gnocchi
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss or Gruyere cheese

Directions

  • Preheat the broiler to high heat.
  • Melt the butter in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the ham and thyme and continue to cook until the ham is lightly browned.
  • Add the chicken broth and 3/4 cup water and bring to a simmer. Add the gnocchi, stir well, cover and cook until the gnocchi is slightly tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Uncover and stir in the peas, cream, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Sprinkle the cheese over the top and broil until golden and bubbly, about 3 minutes. Serve.
