Gnocchi Pan Seared In Garlic Onion and Butter

This was just me trying something different with gnocchi's, my favorite form of pasta. These little balls are made with potato and are dumpling like. They are very very filling. You'll love them!

1/2 a small onion
4 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup of butter
Whole wheat gnocchi's

First boil your gnocchi as directed. You will know that they are done when they float to the top. Set aside to drain.

Mince up your onions and garlic. In a frying pan melt the butter and toss in the vggies. Follow this by adding the cooked gnocchi's and keep them moving in the melted mixture until they soak it up and turn a nice golden color. You can also add salt or pepper at this time to your own taste. Remember. No salt at the table! It's the small things that you can change to make yourself healthier!

Serve with slices of plain or garlic bread.
