Gnocchi with Mushroom Ragu

20131105-153738.jpg

This recipe was inspired by a recipe I came across in Food & Wine Magazine. I love the combo of mushrooms with gnocchi and fresh thyme. I have a massive skillet that I use for dishes like this. If you don’t have a massive skillet – cook the mushrooms in a couple batches.

Ingredients:
3 TBSP butter
3 TBSP olive oil
1 1/2 lbs mixed wild mushrooms, cleaned and cut into bite size pieces
Salt and pepper
2 shallots, minced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp thyme, minced
3/4 c dry white wine
1 package of gnocchi

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

In a large skillet, melt the butter and olive oil, add the shallots and garlic, cook over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook for 8 – 12 minutes over medium high heat until the mushrooms start to get crispy. Add the wine and thyme and cook until most of the wine is gone. Drop the heat to low.

Cook the gnocchi according to the package. When they float, remove and add to the mushrooms.

Serve topped with some fresh parmigiano.

Serves 4.
