Gnocchi, Sweet Corn & Arugula in Cream Sauce

Directions

  1. In Dutch oven cook gnocchi according to package directions, adding corn the last 5 minutes of cooking time. Use tongs to transfer ears of corn (if using) to cutting board. Drain gnocchi and corn kernels (if using), reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta water. Do not rinse.
  2. Meanwhile, for cream sauce, in medium saucepan combine half-and-half, cream cheese, salt, garlic powder, dried herb, and pepper. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in reserved pasta water.
  3. Return cooked pasta to Dutch oven. Cut corn from cob and add to pasta. Pour cream sauce over pasta; heat through, if necessary. Stir in arugula. Serve in bowls. Sprinkle with additional salt, pepper, dried herb, and crushed red pepper.

From the Test Kitchen

Change Up:

Replace the corn with 1 cup chopped red sweet pepper and/or add 12 oz cooked shrimp after tossing with gnocchi with the cream sauce.

Used spring mix instead of arugula. It was really good. I will definitely make it again.

Delicious recipe altogether. I made it for the first time and the boyfriend loved it. Instead of using arugula, I used spinach and it turned out just as delicious I'm sure.Next time, I'll add some chicken to get some protein out of it ;)

I've never encountered a 3 oz package of cream cheese. Is that a typo, or is it just a 3 oz portion of a larger package of cream cheese?

i forgot to reserve the water from the pasta and had to use fresh water, but the meal was still yummy. would be good with spinach too

I added chicken and used a spinach/arugula salad mix blend. It was really yummy!

Loved it! Super delicious. I was impressed with myself for making such a yummy dish. I substituted the arugala with spinach and used only about 3/4 tsp of garlic. And instead of dried basil, I used fresh and sauteed it with a little EVOO. I would recommend softening your cream cheese before putting it in the pan with the cream, that will help it blend a little easier. Hope you enjoy this as much as I did! Oh, and the leftovers were even better!
