Gnocchi with Shrimp, Asparagus, Broccoli, and Pesto

>We had this for dinner tonight and it was yummy and super easy and quick to prepare. It’s definitely going to be on my list from now on!

Gnocchi with Shrimp, Asparagus, Broccoli, and Pesto
Adapted from Cooking Light
16oz pkg vacuum-packed gnocchi*
1 lb fresh asparagus (cut into 1 in slices)
Head or 2 of broccoli (cut into smaller pieces)
1 pound peeled and deveined large shrimp**
prepared pesto
Boil water in a large dutch oven. Cook gnocchi for 4-5 minutes or until done (it will rise to the top). Remove with a slotted spoon and place in a large bowl. Boil shrimp, asparagus and broccoli for 5 minutes or until done. Drain and add to gnocchi. Mix with pesto (however much you want, I used a couple spoonfuls). Voila!
*I found this in the pasta section. It’s not refrigerated.
**I used a bag of frozen raw shrimp that already had the tails removed. It was WAY cheaper than going fresh and then you can cook it whenever you want to.
Maddie is 19 months old and wasn’t very interested in eating anything but the gnocchi, which is OK because she’s cute 🙂
