Spinach – Mushroom Gnocchi in Alfredo Sauce paired with Baked Asparagus

I threw this together on a whim last night and all I have to say say is holy yumm! The asparagus pairs so well with it too.

What You Need:

* One Package of Gnocchi
* One Jar of Light Alfredo Sauce ( your choice )
* One Cup Fresh Spinach Chopped
* One Cup Fresh Mushrooms Chopped
* Quarter of a Cup Finely Chopped Pecans
* Half a Pound of Asparagus

Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Prepare Asparagus buy cleaning, cutting off ends and arranging in a glass baking dish
Drizzle asparagus with Olive Oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper
Pop in the oven for about a half hour or until stalk is soft and ends are slightly crisp

Over low heat saute spinach and mushrooms until soft
Add a teaspoon of butter to the skillet
Add gnocchi
Turn heat up to low-medium stirring occasionally until gnocchi is slightly browned
Add Alfredo sauce to skillet and turn heat up to medium and cook to thicken for about ten minutes

Plate Gnocchi and Asparagus, sprinkle with Pecans and Enjoy!
