Plated Baked Gnocchi with Tomato, Mozzarella, and Spring Salad

This wasn’t a bad meal, but it wasn’t a GREAT meal either.  It was WAY too saucy, there wasn’t enough gnocchi to soak it all up.  Also, the pictures show a super cheesy pan, from the sad picture below you will see that was impossible with the amount of cheese given.  Thank goodness I had mozzarella on hand to supplement!

It took me a about 50 minutes, Plated said it would take 35-45, so not too far off.  One thing I did not like doing was crushing the tomatoes by hand.  Since the can had been in the fridge, they were really cold and it was just an odd texture.  Making the sauce though, apart from tomato crushing was kind of fun.  Seeing everything come together and taste delicious is always an enjoyable experience.   I also liked making my own salad dressing, and that is definitely something I could see myself doing in the future.  It was a decent meal and a good learning experience.
