So, it’s November some how.

I’m not quite sure where these last few months have gone!  Thanksgiving is literally a few short weeks away and then it’s Christmas!

Somebody slow down time.  And somebody get me on track.  I need to be planning turkey day food for you all, not pasta.  Unless, of course you want to serve this for Thanksgiving.  I won’t judge.

I do actually have some posts planned that would be more appropriate for Thanksgiving coming up, so don’t worry.

For now lets talk about this cheesy comfort food.  It is super simple to put together (which is a must for me) and it only bakes for 30 minutes.  Nothing is boiled, sauteed or browned prior to baking and this is what saves time on prep.  So, you’ll have some super awesome food on the table real fast!

I do want to stress to buy quality gnocchi when making dishes like this.  I use DeLallo brand and I haven’t had a complaint yet.  Their gnocchi is 85% potato and not filled with a bunch of extra flour so it’s more like homemade.  🙂  Enjoy!
