Gnocchi alla Romana

w/ garlic bread-stuffed zucchini & pizzeria salad
SERVES 4 • OVEN • 25 MINUTES
Step 1Preheat the oven to 450° & prepare to cook on the middle & top racks. While the oven is preheating, unpack all your “mise en place” (ingredients).
Step 2Lightly coat a lined sheet tray with butter or pan spray. Carefully transfer the gnocchi medallions onto the lined tray in a single layer & place in the oven on the middle rack. Place the uncovered pan of zucchini on a sheet tray on the top rack. Cook both for 15-20 minutes. You know your oven best; cook times may vary, but you're looking for the gnocchi to be a nice golden brown & the zucchini to be fork tender. Place the marinara in a saucepan & heat slowly over low heat until warm.
Remove the gnocchi from the oven & turn on the broiler or set your oven to the highest temperature. Top the zucchini with half of the container of parmigiano. Keeping a close eye on the zucchini, broil or cook until the top is golden brown & crunchy.
Place the romaine lettuce & shaved vegetables in a large bowl with the creamy Italian dressing. Toss until thoroughly coated. Garnish the gnocchi with the remaining parmigiano. Serve the gnocchi & stuffed zucchini with warm marinara & finished pizzeria salad. Enjoy!
