Gnocchi with Mushroom Sauce

Ingredients
2
ounces dried porcini mushrooms
 
Boiling water
1/3
cup thinly sliced leek (1 medium)
3
cloves garlic, minced
2
tablespoons butter
2
tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2
pounds fresh portobello* and/or button mushrooms, sliced
1
pound fresh cremini mushrooms, sliced
3/4
cup Chardonnay or other dry white wine
3/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground black pepper
2/3
cup whipping cream
2
tablespoons all-purpose flour
1
tablespoon snipped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley
2
16 ounce packages shelf-stable potato gnocchi

Directions

  1. Soak dried mushrooms in enough boiling water to cover about 15 minutes or until soft. Drain, discarding liquid. Squeeze mushrooms to remove additional liquid.
  2. Meanwhile, for mushroom sauce:
  3. In a 4- to 5-quart Dutch oven, cook and stir leek and garlic in hot butter over medium heat for 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove leek mixture. Add oil to Dutch oven; heat over medium-high heat. Add porcini mushrooms, portobello and/or button mushrooms, and cremini mushrooms. Cook about 15 minutes or until mushrooms are lightly browned and liquid is evaporated, stirring occasionally. Stir in wine, salt, and pepper.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together cream and flour; stir into mushroom mixture. Cook and stir until thickened. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Stir in leek mixture and parsley.
  5. Meanwhile, cook gnocchi according to package directions. Serve gnocchi with mushroom sauce.

*Tip:

For a lighter colored sauce, use a knife or a teaspoon to gently scrape away the gills (the black portions underneath the caps) from the portobello mushrooms before slicing.
