While Trader Joe’s Cauliflower Gnocchi topped every list of trendy grocery buys when it first appeared in stores, their Kale Gnocchi made a quieter entrance at the start of this year. If you’ve had a chance to try it, you likely agree that it’s really, really good. This very-green sheet pan dinner is a celebration of the freezer staple: The gnocchi meets a mix of green veggies and lots of garlicky pesto in a super-simple dinner we have going on repeat.

This 3-Ingredient Sheet Pan Dinner Is the Easiest Way to Eat More Greens

The newest gluten-free gnocchi at TJ’s would happily swim in your favorite marinara sauce, but we prefer to celebrate its green-ness rather than hide it. Toss the still-frozen gnocchi on a sheet pan with a bag of Trader Joe’s frozen broccoli, zucchini, and pea medley, and roast it all together until the vegetables are tender and the gnocchi are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Drizzle the mess with plenty of basil pesto and you’ve got all your greens in one place — and in one bowl — for dinner.
