Gnocchi with homemade pesto and mozzarella cheese
Gnocchi can be used in a variety of ways. The small dumplings are often equated with pasta, but they are usually made from potatoes. They provide a good base for many hot and cold dishes. However, gnocchi are especially perfect for you when you don't have much time and want to conjure up a delicious and quick lunch.
Gnocchi can combine healthy eating and pleasure
In today's recipe we show you an Italian version of gnocchi. Our homemade pesto with basil and pine nuts is particularly healthy and contains many important nutrients. Basil has an antibacterial effect, strengthens the immune system, protects the heart and circulation and helps the body with infections. Among other things, pine nuts contain large amounts of the trace element selenium. This substance supports our immune system and protects our body from the so-called "free radicals".
Ingredients (2 people) :
20g pine nuts
½ clove garlic
25 g basil (1 bunch)
5 tablespoons olive oil
20 g Parmesan cheese (1 piece)
