Asiago Stuffed Gnocchi in a White Wine Cream

It's a Sunday - why complicate things? Sometimes ending the weekend can be just as simple as beginning it. That's exactly how I ended mine. A bit of asiago stuffed gnocchi in a white wine cream sauce was perfect. 

I have a rule - not sure if it's golden though. If there's a cream sauce and some kind of pasta - there just has to be peas...right?

Thanks - I'm glad you agree...even you too Complaint Department Manager - lol!

So, here's how this goes.

The Ingredients
1/2 pound of sweet gulf shrimp
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/2 pound of frozen gnocchi (your choice of flavors - there are a million of them)
1/4 cup of frozen peas
1/2 cup of heavy cream
1/4 cup of white wine
1/4 cup of good Parmesan cheese
1 clove of garlic, minced
salt and pepper
a dash of cayenne
chopped parsley

The Process
Cook gnocchi as package directs. Drain and reserve. In a skillet heat olive oil and garlic over high heat for about 30 seconds. Add shrimp and cook until almost done. Add white wine and cook for about 2 minutes until it's almost evaporated. Add peas, heavy cream, Parmesan cheese, cayenne, and salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat and cook for about 2 minutes until sauce thickens. Carefully fold in gnocchi until well incorporated. Plate and top with more cheese and parsley.

YES - that's a biscuit in the background. I had a few left over from breakfast this morning. Why not have it with your pasta? I know white wine cream and biscuits don't sound that great together - but they were delicious!

Another really good view!

It looks delicious! How about a vegetarian version with a bit less fat?

freemanpress said...

I'm going to take this recipie and try it this weekend. I need to learn how to cook better for myself anyway.

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

What a tasty and comforting dish! Totally yummy!

Cheers,

Rosa

Lisa said...

These pasta recipes are killing me. Of course you need peas with a cream sauce and pasta.

doggybloggy said...

did someone say gnocchi?

Adam said...

This looks awesome D. I think I'm with you on the peas... you can never have too many peas :)

Mary Coleman said...

Give me the cream sauce and a big fat spoon! That looks wonderful, especially with a biscuit.
Yum.

brneyedgal967 said...

I've never made gnocchi - they have it frozen? Wow. The things I learn on the good ol' internet.

And pasta with biscuits? Pshaw. Glad you're not a food snob. In my house, ya use what ya got. This dish looks fabulous!!

fuzzy said...

I'm bringing my bib and coming over, make room!

Peter M said...

I too would be honoured to one day be a guest of Darious and eat off the famous triangular plate!

HoneyB said...

This looks really great! I have never (can you believe it?) had gnocci but want to try making it. I may have to make your recipe here. Seems simple enough (but I will have to work out extra time just to eat it! lol)

The Short (dis)Order Cook said...

I love gnocchi and you have some great flavors going on this lovely cream sauce, but I must differ with you on the pea thing. I avoid any food on the menu containing peas.

I see nothing wrong with the biscuits though. It looks good to me.

dessex said...

gotta try this one too

Maria said...

gnocchi is one of my all time favorites! I just love it!

Colleen said...

Wow, this looks AMAZING! I can't wait to try it!

Natashya said...

Such delicious comfort. I love gnocchi.

Sha Boogie said...

Peas! Peas! Yes..mmmmm.. I'm drooling. I need to make this, like right now! Just get up from my desk, go home and make it. lol

Cheryl said...

Um can I come live with you? that looks amazing!

RecipeGirl said...

I'm big on peas in a cream sauce too. Perfect. Have you ever tried making your own gnocchi? I was just discussing this with a friend over the weekend. It doesn't sound too terribly difficult. I don't know how much better it would be than the frozen stuff though.

Complaint Department Manager said...

Anything to a-peas me, ay? I'm surprised you didn't have peas with the mac & cheese.

Another gratuitous, you are much to kind.

Chef E said...

I keep reading about cheese...I wish I could just wake up each day to a fridge full of all kinds of cheese...your stuff looks good!

Dawn said...

Looks divine to me. And yes, peas and cream sauce always go together. You're smart to use good quality parmesan cheese, it really does make a difference in taste.

Marjie said...

Did you ever check out my "dogs on Thursday" posts? That guy is my complaints manager. He eats if you complain, because I'll take your damn plate away.

Veronica said...

Honestly, what doesn't go with a biscuit?? I'm not a big fan of peas...but I think I would really like this dish.

Candy said...

I agree peas and cream are a great combo. I like the frozen gnocchi but have you ever made it from scratch? It's truly easier than I thought it would be and you can mix so many different flavors. But for "everyday cookin" I'm with you on the frozen. I also like the shelf stable kind from World Market.

Lisa said...

I'm thinking I'd substitute mushrooms for the shrimp. Fantastic recipe!

Kofi Bofah said...

I am going to have to get on here, pick a recipe and try to do my thing.

It's a little intimidating being a rookie with little to no experience in the kitchen though.

I will keep checking in...

Debbie said...

Gnocchi, white wine, cream, peas...what could be better. Sounds especially good with the shrimp!

BGF said...

Yes, peas and cream go hand-in-hand. I especially like it with gorgonzola as the base.
Now I'm really hungry!

redmenace said...

This looks fantastic! Thanks for the recipe.

glamah16 said...

Perfecto and rich!

TavoLini said...

I really love these pics, Darius!! And, of course, its sounds ridiculously decadent :)

canarygirl said...

Oh good Lord. I did NOT need to see this at 7am. Gnocchi + peas + white wine? I am so there. Don't add all the wine to the sauce though, I want a glass with the food! lol Great recipe, Darius! :)

Daniel said...

that looks so good

Fearless Kitchen said...

This looks great. I don't know that I always associate peas with a white wine cream sauce, but I can't see why they wouldn't go, and it makes the sauce a little healthier.

And why not a biscuit? We'd usually have some sort of bread (I'm from an Italian family), and a biscuit counts.

Nicole said...

You and your peas!!!!! LOL! I love gnocchi.

Jan said...

I think we should ALL come over to have a taste of this one.
But bagsey I get the triangular plate!

ttfn300 said...

My my, these look so much better than the eggplant ones i tried to make :)

Allie said...

That just looks awesome!

Pat said...

Where did you find "asaigo stuffed gnocchi" to begin with? That alone would be unbelievable but adding shrimp and a cream sauce -- oh my how decadent!

Heather said...

Damn, that looks like a stepped-up version of my tuna casserole (but with shrimp instead of tuna). And a biscuit? I ain't mad atcha.

Bridgett said...

I didn't know gnocchi could be this fantastic. I would easily be eating off everyone's plate at that dinner party!

Mrs Ergül said...

I see that you have a new layout! Stunning!

Bellini Valli said...

Another comforting dish....My favourite place for peas is in potato salad:D

Katherine Aucoin said...

I love gnocchi. Yours with the creme sauce looks and sounds amazing.

Parker said...

This pasta looks beautiful. I have to try gnocchi one of these days.

LBJ said...

This is surely everyday cookin'!

Gnocci is great and it is ultra easy to work with. I think children should learn to cook with it.

And I'm loving the cayenne used in the dish. When I looked at the pic I said to myself "that would be good with cayenne on the back end" and lo and behold, you used it! Which brand of cayenne do you prefer?

I could not do gnocci, heavy cream and biscuits though. Its way to much for me. I'd be laid out in a food coma after all those carbs. lol

Sandie said...

This dish looks so appealing, I may have to make it for dinner this week. My family would LOVE it!

Lori said...

Oh! I love gnocchi. One of my absolute favorites. So funny about the peas. My husband hates them with a passion. Ha, ha! The biscuit made me laugh too. My mom makes biscuits with almost every dinner, even italian/pastas. :)

soulcookbook said...

I want to try my hand at gnocchi from scratch but I am scurred. I will concur that fear, though.

And yes, I agree that peas compliment ANY cream dish.

Happy cook said...

I lov ethis pasta and your look yummy delicious and doesn't matter about the language as longs as the food is delicious :-)

Kevin said...

I have never seen a stuffed gnocchi. That looks so good! I like the shrimp in it and that white wine sauce sounds so tasty!

Maryann said...

I like dishes that are made up!!

Nina Timm said...

Gnocchi is my favorite "pasta" and this has to be favorite sauce...I'm gonna make this soon!

Dee said...

That first photo just reeled me in! I've been meaning to make my own gnocchi so I do appreciate this sauce recipe.

Jude said...

Nice to find other Chicago bloggers.. Just looking around your blog and liking what I'm seeing :)

Dana McCauley said...

Sounds like fun! Have you heard about the aperitivo trend? Many of these dishes would work for an aperitvo paty.

Zombie Mom said...

Yum, clearly I am hungry. Your blog is total food porn... Its been a week of stomach flu and I am finally hungry, but I only want to eat teh food on this blog...

Jeanne said...

There is absolutely nothing not to like about this dish :) And yes! Yes! to peas in pasta!

Chef E said...

Clearly you are out to torture us!

Eunice said...

Man, this is what I call real food! MOVE OVER, DESSERT!

...a now, VERY hungry soul.

Hey, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the structure of your site?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to
say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it
better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
