“This mouthwatering recipe comes from a local Italian restaurant near my hometown. Simple yet very filling.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut the top off of a large bulb of garlic and place the garlic bulb in a small oven safe dish and pour 1/2 cup of olive oil over bulb. Roast in oven until soft and caramelized. This takes about 30 minutes.
  2. Boil enough salted water to cook gnocchi according to package directions.
  3. Drop gnocchi into boiling water for 2 minutes. Drain in colander and let cool.
  4. Remove garlic from oil and set aside. In a large skillet, saute cauliflower in the reserve oil from the roasted garlic until the cauliflower starts to brown. Add water and remove from heat.
  5. Squeeze garlic bulb, removing the tender meat and add directly to skillet. Add gnocchi, heavy cream and Parmesan. Mix. Bring back up to medium heat. Stir until the sauce is hot and the cheese has completely melted.
