Gnocchi Al Forno with mushrooms (creamy mushroom gnocchi)
Italian, Mediterranean Inspired
Gnocchi Al Forno is a classic Italian dish normally infused with sage. This creamy mushroom gnocchi recipe replaces the sage with shiitake mushrooms which contribute an earthy complexity.

(I like the potato sweet potato, carrot version)
I used small shiitake mushrooms I found at the food market.
Pre-heat oven to 200 degC
Melt 20g of the butter in a skillet
In 3 to 4 batches, saute the shiitake mushrooms in the butter. Don’t do them all at once otherwise they become soggy rather than crispy
Remove mushrooms and drain
Add the other 30 g butter to the skillet, and once melted, add the gnocchi and lightly brown
Add the mushrooms and cheeses to the gnocchi, distributing evenly
Transfer to the oven and cook until cheese is melted and browning on the top.
Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving.
Great with a mixed green salad.
