Gnocchi with Goat Cheese, Cherry Tomatoes and Basil


1 package pre-made gnocchi (or make your own---I used whole wheat gnocchi from Trader Joe's!)

1 log goat cheese (about 6 oz)

1/2 cup cooking water leftover from boiling gnocchi

2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

1/2 cup torn basil leaves


Cook gnocchi in boiling salted water for a couple minutes until all the gnocchi float. Drain and save 1/2 cup water.

Transfer the hot gnocchi to a large bowl, add goat cheese, cooking water, cherry tomatoes and basil. Mix well so cheese melts.

Season with a little black pepper to taste. Serve immediately (this isn't a good dish to reheat).
