Gnocchi, Sweet Corn & Arugula in Cream Sauce
Ingredients
  • 2  small  ears of fresh sweet corn or 2 cups frozen whole kernel corn
  • 1  pound  shelf-stable potato gnocchi
  • 3/4  cup  half-and-half or light cream
  • 1 3  ounce package  cream cheese, cut up
  • 1/2  teaspoon each  salt, garlic powder and dried basil or oregano
  • 1/4  teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 3  cups  torn fresh arugula
  •  Crushed red pepper (optional)
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.
