Makes: 6 servings

Prep: 10 mins

Cook: 30 mins

  • 1 1/2 pounds gnocchi
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 10 sprigs thyme
  • 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cups coarsely chopped radicchio
  1. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the gnocchi according to package directions. Drain and transfer to a papertowel-lined baking pan.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook until browned, 5 minutes. Add the beef broth and 4 sprigs thyme; bring to a boil. Cook until the broth has reduced to about 1/4 cup, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl and discard the thyme. Stir in the peas; season with salt and pepper. Wipe out the skillet.
  3. In the skillet, heat the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil and the butter over medium-high heat. Add the gnocchi and cook, tossing occasionally, until golden. Add the radicchio and cook, stirring, until wilted, about 2 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Divide the gnocchi mixture among shallow pasta bowls. Top with the mushroom mixture and remaining sprigs of thyme.
