This is a great twist on gnocchi! Garlic, basil, onion, mushrooms, sweet peppers, and tomatoes are sauteed before mixing with butter and balsamic vinegar to make a sauce.

Stir the butter in to melt. Pour the balsamic vinegar into the skillet, stir, reduce heat, and simmer the sauce for 15 to 20 minutes. Toss the cooked gnocchi with the sauce.

Due to the other reviews I cut the butter and vinegar in half and skipped the mushrooms. It was a huge success. I can't even imagine what it would have tasted like had I followed the original recipe. I served it with steak and a sliced tomato & mozarella salad. Read More

This recipe was overpowered by to much vinegar. There was also way to much butter. I felt like I wasted my time and ingredients because the sauce was terrible. Read More

Very Good. I was looking for some gnocchi receipes and glad I stompled onto this recipe. I added sliced sausage to the recipe to make it into a meal and my family loved it. Read More

5 stars with the changes I made. I used twice the amount of veggies to give it a healthy boost and I used button mushrooms quartered instead of the crimini mushrooms. I used only 2 tbsps butter and added the vinegar to taste (maybe 1/6 or 1/8 C?). I added 3/4 cup chicken boullion with about 1-2 tbsps white flour in it to make more and a thicker sauce. I also added about 1/2 cup shredded chicken to give it some protein. Now it's a complete meal! I loved and so did my husband. Read More

Excellent recipe. The secret is to make sure that you simmer the sauce long enough. The balsamic vinegar is delicious in this recipe and it is now being added to our recipe book. Read More

Wasn't amazing but a decent tasting recipe. I chose to leave out the butter and replace it with some chicken stock. Some added smoked sausage made it a complete meal. Read More

I was really disapointed with this recipe. It wasn't that flavorful and it called for way too much butter. I will not cook it again. Read More
