Mushroom and Garlic Sauce for Gnocchi from Vicki Delany

Happy New Year! Here's hoping 2021 is a year to gather together. 

A couple of weeks ago, I gave you my recipe for ricotta gnocchi.  You can use just about any pasta sauce with the gnocchi, but this is the one I like.

 Mushroom and Garlic Sauce for Gnocchi


1 lb. Mushrooms, washed and sliced

4 large garlic cloves, minced

½ Tbsp. chopped chili peppers (or to taste)  

2 Tbsp. olive oil 

½ cup vegetable stock

1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese, plus extra for serving

3 Tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped


Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and chilli peppers and cook gently, until golden, about 2 minutes.

Add the mushrooms to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring and tossing frequently until the mushrooms are sizzling and brown, about 7 minutes.

Add the stock, parsley, and grated cheese.  Stir over medium heat for 2 minutes,

Add gnocchi

Serve immediately, sprinkled with extra grated parmesan

Coming January 12! The next Sherlock Holmes Bookshop mystery, A Curious Incident.
