Chorizo, Spinach, Pepper Mushroom Gnocchi Loving you’re Leftovers

IMG_3799I am having a fridge clear today, and we have half a Chorizo ring to use up, a few random tomatoes, the 3/4 of a red pepper that I ‘knew’ was in the fridge, but was hiding from me yesterday and some mushrooms that are starting to look like yoda – wrinkled not green 🀣 – Aldi Gnocchi in the cupboard, sounds like a meal to me 😊

I start by dicing a medium brown onion, a fat sliced clove of garlic, sliced mushrooms, Β a sliced red pepper and sliced, skinned chorizo, these are gently fried, till the Chorizo starts letting its oil out.

When Chorizo mix is pretty much cooked through, set it to one side, and in the same pan,

pop a couple of teaspoons of olive oil in the pan and gently fry the Gnocchi till its golden and crisp on the outside.

Tip the chorizo mix back into the Gnocchi, Stir through. Β Add a few good handfuls of baby leaf spinach, to the Gnocchi and toss through.

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
