  • 500 g gnocchi
  • 3 tbs green pesto
  • 20 olives chopped
  • 40 g chorizo finely chopped


  • Bring a pan of salted water to the boil over a medium / high heat. Plunge the gnocchi into the water and cook for 2 - 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, drain into a colander / strainer and set aside until later.
  • Place the chopped chorizo and olives into a non stick skillet / frying pan and heat over a medium heat. Dry fry until the chorizo has released its oil and has started to crisp up a bit. 
  • Tip the gnocchi into the skillet and saute until the gnocchi starts to colour in parts. Reduce the heat a little and stir in the pesto. Cook for a further 2 - 3 minutes until the pesto is covering the gnocchi and the dish has warmed through. 
  • Enjoy!
