“MEAL IDEA: Serve with salad of baby greens, strawberries, and tomatoes with blue cheese vinaigrette. Complete your meal with garlic bread and cheesecake. *From Publix FamilyStyle magazine. PLEASE NOTE: one of the ingredients is supposed to read SEASONING BLEND (it is a blend of veggies that you can buy frozen at the grocery store).”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut pepper into quarters (discard seeds and membrane); cut pepper into 1/4" pieces. Remove core from tomatoes; cut tomatoes into 1/2" chunks. Stack basil leaves; slice into thin strips. Set all aside.
  2. Preheat large saute pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Place oil in saute pan; swirl to coat. Add garlic and seasoning blend; cook 3-4 minutes, stirring often, or until onions begin to soften.
  3. Stir in wine, chicken base, tomatoes, bell pepper, basil, salt, and pepper and bring to a boil.
  4. Reduce heat on tomato mixture to medium; cook 15 minute, stirring occasionally, or until all vegetables are soft and sauce has thickened slightly.
  5. Meanwhile, fill large saucepan half full of water. Cover and bring to a boil on high for gnocchi.
  6. Stir gnocchi into boiling water (separating, if needed). Boil 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until tender.
