As I pointed out in this recipe (Chicken Alfredo Gnocchi Bake), I think Gnocchi is seriously underrated. There are so many dishes you can make using potato gnocchi. This recipe was especially timely as I had some leftover Ham from New Year’s dinner and almost every other ingredient handy. While I used a cast iron skillet to make this casserole, you can use any skillet as long as it’s oven safe.


If you are not a fan of Gruyere cheese or have a hard time finding some at your local grocery store, Swiss cheese would be a good substitute.


How to Make this Recipe


Melt the butter in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. (I used a cast iron skillet)


Add the onions and cook until softened, about 3 minutes.


Add the ham and thyme and continue to cook until the ham is lightly browned.


Add the chicken broth and 3/4 cup water and bring to a simmer.


Add the gnocchi , stir well, cover and cook until the gnocchi is slightly tender, about 5 minutes.


Remove from the heat. Uncover and stir in the peas, cream, salt and pepper to taste.


Sprinkle the cheese over the top and broil until golden and bubbly, about 3 minutes.
