Ingredients

  • 16 oz Gnocchi fresh or refrigerated
  • 10 oz Cherry Tomatoes
  • 8 oz Fresh Mozzarella Pearls

  • ¼ teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Freshly Cracked Pepper
  • 2 tablespoon Pesto Sauce

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 425°F and slice the cherry tomatoes in half lengthwise.

  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the tomatoes have started to wilt and the gnocchi has plumped up.
