Happy (rainy) Friday everyone! It’s a wet, soggy hide-under-the-covers fall day here in Westport, so I don’t mind spending a little extra time in the kitchen-but this really is a simple recipe. Check out my pastasalad with a twist, which can be served cold or warm. It starts with @traderjoes cauli flower gnocci which my whole family loves. (Even the kids say they they taste like tater tots when I make them brown and crispy!). Whatever you do DO NOT follow the cooking instructions on the package: I find them best for cooking when defrosted first. Although traditional gnocci is great in moderation, this one is lighter, #lutenfree and higher in fiber with 6 grams per serving. All the veggies in this dish add even more fiber plus antioxidants. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
