I wish I could curl up in these little pillows of heaven. Gnocchi with mushrooms and artichokes is one of my favorite things. I have come to accept that I am obsessed with any kind of dumpling. They are so cute, and they make me happy. Oh! This recipe is vegetarian, a one pot meal, and a 30 minute meal. It’s almost to good to be true. Almost…
I decided to use all of my favorite things in this dish. This includes mushrooms, artichokes, garlic, beans, and tomatoes. I mean with this line up how could this NOT be good? I kind of feel like I’m am cheating because this dish is also a one pot meal! Yep. All you need is a cast iron skillet. Genius, I know.
First you toast the gnocchi in the skillet. Then remove them and roast the mushrooms, tomatoes, and garlic in the same skillet. Yes. You will need your oven for this. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet make sure your skillet is oven safe. If you have never roasted tomatoes you are really missing out! BONUS: They are super good for you!

Once the mushrooms and tomatoes are done, you just mix in the rest of the ingredients. So easy! Make sure to place an oven mitt or towel over the handle of the skillet when you take it out of the oven. You don’t want to accidentally grab it! Ouch! I haven’t done that yet, but I know it’s bound to happen at some point. I hope you enjoy this Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Artichokes.
