ONE SKILLET HAM AND PEAS GNOCCHI WITH MINT

INGREDIENTS:

1 tbsp. olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
3/4 to 1 lb. diced ham
1 tbsp. chopped garlic
1 2/3 cup milk
5 oz. reduced fat cream cheese or Neufchatel
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 rounded tsp. black pepper
1 (16 oz.) pkg. potato gnocchi
1 cup frozen peas
1/4 cup lightly packed fresh chopped mint
1/2 cup shredded cheddar, Monterey Jack cheese, or American


INSTRUCTIONS:

Add olive oil to a large preheat a large skillet on medium heat. Add onion. Sauté for 3 minutes. Add ham and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add milk, cream cheese, salt, and pepper. As the cream cheese melts, use a whisk to gently smooth out lumps. 

Add gnocchi and peas. Turn heat up slightly to medium high. Gently break apart clumps of gnocchi with a wooden spatula or spoon. Immediately reduce heat to medium low or a simmer when the sauce begins to boil. Cook for 3 minutes or until gnocchi becomes soft and fluffy, stirring occasionally. Add mint and cheese, stirring until cheese melts. Remove from heat. Allow to sit for a few minutes before serving to allow sauce to slightly thicken.

Makes 4 servings.
