Gnocchi with Herbed Goat Cheese Sauce

This one was fun. Gnocchi are just little fluffy pastas that always seem best with light fluffy sauces and a glass of wine. I've eliminated the glass with this one and put the wine in the sauce instead. But by all means, have another glass handy for yourself!

Gnocchi with Herbed Goat Cheese Sauce

1 tbsp OliveNGrape Italian Herb Olive Oil
1 tbsp OliveNGrape Oregano Olive Oil
3 tbsp dry white wine
1 cup vegetable broth
4 oz goat cheese
½ tsp minced fresh garlic
1 lb gnocchi
1 small zucchini, sliced
2 small fresh tomatoes, diced

Cook and drain the gnocchi. Rinse well & set aside.

Sauté zucchini & garlic in a pan over medium heat with the OliveNGrape Oregano Olive Oil for 3-4 minutes, until the zucchini is soft & the garlic is very fragrant.

In a small saucepan, combine the wine, broth & OliveNGrape Italian Herb Olive Oil. Simmer over medium heat until reduced by half. Add the goat cheese, salt & pepper. Simmer, stirring frequently until melted through.

Toss together with the diced tomatoes and serve.
