This recipe is part of the One-Bowl-Wonders series.  Recipes is this series are simple, quick, and can be made with just one bowl.  They are designed to be ready to eat in about an hour without wrecking your whole kitchen!  Easy recipes. Easy clean-up. Big reward!

When I want something fast, easy, and crowd-pleasing, I will be making this gnocchi with artichoke hearts 9 times out o 10. Especially in the summer.  Normally, pasta seems like a heavy choice for warmer months, but the acidity from lemon and the marinated artichoke hearts makes this a bright zesty summer favorite!

When something this delicious and flavorful can be made in 15 minutes and with one pot, it gets an A+.  If I have no time or unexpected guests, this is a summer time go to.  Pop the cork on a chilled bottle of pinot gris and spend the night doing something other than cooking!

Ya’ll, my mouth is watering.  I have a serious crush on anything with artichoke hearts in it.  And tender little gnocchi dumplings, a light bright sauce, and some parmesan shreds make this a mouthwatering combo!!

Easy to prep ingredients.  One bowl. Big flavors.  15 minutes.  Yaaaaasssss!
