Summer Corn & Tomato Gnocchi is a vibrant dish perfect for featuring fresh, summer produce! Sweet corn, tomatoes and garden-fresh basil come together in a buttery white wine sauce. Tossed together with fluffy gnocchi, a flavorful summer recipe is ready to go!
Let’s Talk Summer Produce
Come this time of year, Summer produce is in full swing! From corn, to tomatoes, to basil, this recipe features them all! The best part about using summer-fresh produce is the flavor. Loaded full of sweetness, fresh corn is sliced off the cob and tossed in to sauté. Juicy tomatoes burst and make a decadent sauce. And then vibrant, fresh basil brings it all together.
Granted, if it’s not summertime and you still want to make this recipe, go for it! These days we can get fresh, seasonal produce all-year round. But, trust me, you’ve gotta try it when it’s summertime fresh!
Corn tip: have you seen or heard of the bundt pan trick for cutting the corn off the cob? Simply husk the corn, place it into the center ring of the bundt pan to stabilize it and then cut all the kernels into the pan! Easy and mess-free.
Onto the Gnocchi
Gnocchi is a true showcase that potatoes really can be anything they want to be haha! Did you know that gnocchi is made out of mashed potatoes? That’s right! Homemade gnocchi can be made, or you can buy pre-made gnocchi in your grocery store.
For me, I went with the pre-made gnocchi to save on work and time. I was able to find it at my local Trader Joe’s in the pasta aisle. There are a lot of frozen versions, but for this recipe, I recommend going with a dried version. It will help the gnocchi maintain their texture and bite. Here’s a link to some dried gnocchi at Target!
After a quick boil, the gnocchi is drained and then tossed into scrumptious, buttery, white wine sauce with the tomatoes and corn. The sauce perfectly forms around the gnocchi!
All in all, this gnocchi dish blew my expectations out of the water. Salty pancetta, sweet corn, juicy tomatoes, vibrant basil and comforting gnocchi all come together for a dreamy recipe. We couldn’t stop eating it!
A great recipe for a quick weeknight meal, summer date night with some white wine or a way to use up some of your summer produce.
