Yesterday was the most beautiful day here in Calgary. It was warm and the sun was shining, but it was sooo windy which only means one thing, something is about to blow in……..

We are heading to the mountains later on today and they are supposed to get a bunch of snow, so I have been dreaming about the hearty mushroom gnocchi. If you're like me you want warm and hearty food when it gets cold but don’t always have hours to work on developing those flavours then you are in luck with this one!

This gnocchi is full of flavour and tastes meaty with the addition of portobello mushrooms. If you want to make this full vegetarian swap the chicken stock for mushroom or vegetable stock and still enjoy all the flavours of this quick and easy weeknight dinner.
