Sunday roast with gnocchi on the side

Further to my previous post, I’m very pleased to announce that I have now made Nigella’s rapid roastini and they lived up to the hype! Even my boyfriend, a Gordon Ramsey wannabe who was very sceptical about the idea when I suggested it as an accompaniment to our Sunday roast, was well and truly impressed.

Here’s what I did:

  1. Bought a pack of Del’Ugo potato gnocchi.
  2. Heated up some oil in my lovely big and new Tefal pan (and I’d actually also used the pan to crisp up the skin of my roast, so the oil was deliciously flavourful by the time I added the gnocchi). Once the oil was hot I added the gnocchi.
  3. I let them brown on one side, then tossed them around a bit in the pan to get all over colour – about 2-3 mins.
  4. To finish I aged butter and salt to taste.

Conclusion: the perfect cheats roast potatoes for when you’re in a rush (and a good option when not in a rush for the slightly lazy, but taste-loving cook). I’ll definitely do it again!
