Easy Gnocchi Recipes in the Oven

I’ve always loved gnocchi, even since I was a kid. I like it with a my signature 5-Ingredient San Marzano tomato sauce, bright and fresh pesto, or dressed simply with vegetables and butter… like this dish!

This was my first time ever cooking gnocchi in the oven and WOW was it easy! No water needed, and the gnocchi came out soft, pillowy, and a little crispy on the outside. Absolute pasta perfection.

Sheet Pan Gnocchi For Hands-Off Cooking

I’m a huge fan of sheet pan dinner recipes– I love making anything that allows for hands-off cooking and only cleaning one pan! This recipe came to me after experimenting with a whole week of making a different sheet-pan meal each day.

I loved the idea of making a garlic & dairy-free butter sauce with the butternut squash. Those flavors are so good together on their own, and even better on top of gnocchi.

Comfort Food One Pan Pastas for the WIN!

This sheet pan gnocchi with butternut squash is the tastiest, coziest dinner meal. It’s perfect for a hearty meal for the family, and also great to make for company if you are having guests for dinner. It makes a great holiday meal as well. The oven does most of the work, so you can enjoy hands-off time while you prep sides or a salad!

The roasted vegetables were perfect, especially the kale since it begins to crisp as it bakes. And the bold flavor of the sage works really well in a delicate butter sauce. This was super easy to make, and such a fun way to cook gnocchi in the oven!
