MUSHROOM & SPINACH GNOCCHI WITH PINE NUTS & LEMON ZEST



I am so excited to have partnered with San Remo to let you know about their new gnocchi range, which includes a gluten free gnocchi that tastes delicious and is so light and fluffy in texture! When we first tried it we were all blown away at the restaurant quality and taste, so much so that my husband and kids decided to make firday night pasta night an ongoing theme and convincing me that they will be the ones cooking. Yes, that’s exactly what happened last Friday. I grabbed a glass of wine, my camera (to take some photos of my family’s efforts), passed over my recipe and sat at the kitchen bench to overlook my night off!


We had so much fun laughing at the kids being little chefs and my husband loved taking part in cooking dinner (I’ve got the recipe for you all below). What we all loved most was within 2 minutes the gnocchi was cooked and within 15 minutes dinner was ready. Who would have thought a shelf stable item can be used to create a gourmet style meal so quickly and easily!


A wonderful friday night time-saver and most importantly a much healthier, faster and cheaper alternative to take away food (and you all know how I feel about take away food!)


It was a great way to spend time together and a great way to connect with the kids. Kids in the kitchen teaches them not only how to prepare meals but it teaches them fine motor skills, multi tasking, how to follow instructions and most importantly creates stronger family relationships (if only I could enter a love heart emoji here)


So I had an absolutely fantastic idea that we all create our own recipe or you can use this one that I have created for you and add the hashtag #fridaynightpastanight This way we can all view under this hashtag each others friday night meals and get inspired by each other! I've sent this email out to you tonight in case you want to join in tomorrow night! Who's in?


Finally, for those who will be cooking my MUSHROOM & SPINACH GNOCCHI WITH PINE NUTS & LEMON ZEST, please let me know what you think and tag me and San Remo in your photos! It is my favourite 15 minute meal and I am always so happy to share all my recipes with you. Enjoy and happy upcoming weekend xx
