  2. Pour in the sauce! Stir Mushroom Medley Alfredo Sauce, and let the whole pan simmer gently to meld the flavors. 
  3. Eat up! That's it! Dinner is done.

Mushroom Alfredo Cauliflower Gnocchi

Serves 2

Ingredients

1 package Trader Joe's Cauliflower gnocchi, prepared according to package instructions
2 tbsp olive oil
1 lb sliced cremini mushrooms
1 jar Trader Joe's Mushroom Alfredo Sauce

Method

Warm the olive oil over medium heat. When it’s warm enough that it begins to shimmer, add the sliced mushrooms and the frozen cauliflower gnocchi. Sauté until mushrooms have softened and begun to brown and the cauliflower gnocchi has warmed through and begun to crisp up on the outside—about 6-8 minutes. Stir in the Mushroom Medley Alfredo Sauce, and bring the alfredo gnocchi to a low simmer. Cook until heated through, and serve warm.
