  • 1 bag Trader Joe's Cauliflower Gnocchi
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil plus extra for drizzling
  • 1 ½ cup pasta sauce
  • 2 balls burrata cheese 4-ounces each
  • sea salt
  • black pepper
  • red pepper flakes


  • In a large non-stick skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat until it shimmers.  Add the frozen cauliflower gnocchi to the oil and immediately give the pan a little shake so the frozen pasta doesn't stick.  Do not thaw the gnocchi before cooking.
  • Cook the gnocchi for 4 minutes, turn each piece of pasta over using a pair of tongs and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes until both sides are golden brown.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low and add the pasta sauce to the pan until it simmers.  Divide into 2 to 3 bowls and top with burrata, a drizzle of olive oil, salt and pepper.  For a spicier flavor, sprinkle with red pepper flakes.  Alternatively: You can heat the sauce in a seperate pan and pour into serving bowls then top with gnocchi, burrata and seasoning (as seen in the photos).
