Gnocchi with Wild Mushrooms

  • TOTAL TIME: 30 MIN
  • SERVINGS: 6
  • FAST
  • VEGETARIAN

Chef Way Andrew Carmellini cooks homemade gnocchi in his own intense mushroom stock, then serves them with porcini butter (blended with garlic, herbs and Parmesan) and white-truffle shavings.

Easy Way Store-bought gnocchi and chicken stock fill in for the homemade kinds. The topping: Parmesan cheese and truffle oil.

  1. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  3. 2 pounds mixed wild mushrooms, stemmed if necessary and thickly sliced (10 cups)
  4. 2 shallots, minced
  5. 1/4 cup dry vermouth
  6. 3/4 cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth
  7. 1/2 cup heavy cream
  8. 1 teaspoon chopped thyme
  9. Salt and freshly ground pepper
  10. 2 pounds fresh or frozen prepared gnocchi
  11. 6 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  12. 1 teaspoon white truffle oil (optional)
  1. Preheat the broiler. In a large ovenproof skillet, heat the olive oil with the butter. Add the mushrooms and shallots and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until browned, 12 minutes. Add the vermouth and cook until evaporated. Add the stock, cream and thyme, season with salt and pepper; bring to a boil.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the gnocchi until they float to the surface, about 3 minutes. Drain well. Add the gnocchi to the mushrooms and simmer, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in 1/4 cup of the Parmesan and sprinkle the remaining 2 tablespoons of Parmesan on top.
  3. Broil the gnocchi 6 inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes, until golden and bubbling. Drizzle with truffle oil and serve.

Suggested Pairing

Silky, cherry-inflected Valpolicella.
