These have lots of greens hiding in the sauce and are super tasty. You can make this sauce for pasta or pie as well, I used cauliflower gnocchi but feel free to use something different if you want....

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of frozen peas, frozen thawed
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1 lemon juice and zested
  • 1/2 cup of greek yogurt
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 package of store bought gnocchi
  • Parmesan to sprinkle
  • Chopped basil to sprinkle on top

Directions

Bring a pot of water to boil and add 1/2 tsp of salt. Drop in the peas, spinach and the scallions and cook for 30 seconds an drain. (Keep 1/2 to 1 cup of cooking water.)
Add 1 1/2 cup of the peas, the spinach, the garlic and scallions to a blender along with the salt, lemon  zest and juice and half of the reserved cooking water. Blend on high until it's completely smooth, adding a tiny bit more water if needed to help it blend.

Cook the gnocchi according to package instruction. Transfer to a bowl with the green sauce and add remaining peas to it.

Serve and sprinkle some fresh basil and parmesan on top.
