Pasta, chicken, seafood, veggies—you name it, I pair it with homemade pesto. So I was thrilled to put my pesto-making skills to use most recently as a contributor to KitchenAid’s new blog, The Kitchenthusiast, which features original recipes and entertaining tips while challenging you to go beyond your comfort zone in the kitchen.
Check out a sneak peek of my Homemade Gnocchi with Kale Pesto below, and then head over to The Kitchenthusiast for the full recipe and tips on how to transform potatoes into the ultimate pillowy gnocchi tossed with garlicky kale pesto.

Hi Patrece! I’m working on adding the recipe here to the site. Stay tuned!
Looove this idea! I made gnocchi at work and it is so freaking delicious! I’ve only had it a couple times in my life, but I think it may be one of my new favorites… I recently had a spinach gnocchi dish at an Italian restaurant and really want to try recreating it at home. So so so good! Pairing it with pesto is a great idea, too!
I’ll have to bookmark the gnocchi recipe. I’ve always wanted to try making them myself.
I loooove pesto and I am so into kale right now.. a bit late on trend but I don’t care. This looks like a wicked winter dinner :)
