Right of the packages-- Sardines and mushroom with Gnocchi and Tomatoes


We all have those days. So you will know the feeling

Away from home. Tons of work. Stress building up. No time for major food adventured...Wait..no adventures with food?  That can't be true! The best thing about food is that it is an adventure. A gourmet burger at a fancy restaurant or a bowl of Ramen. As the warm food finds its way to your table, the adventure begins...
 Only when you cook, though...the fun begins with the grocery store. And in the midst of all that stress and blues, a bit of color and fiddling in the kitchen sure does good for the nerves, not to mention the stomach. 
Today I share with you a simple meal that you can whizz up from semi cooked stuff, but will make you feel at home...anywhere and anytime. 

Sardines and mushrooms with Gnocchi-tomato-basil

A couple of big cloves of garlic, minced
One green pepper
Handful of mushrooms. I like baby bellas. Sliced.
A handful of baby spinach
1 handful of Roma tomatoes, halved. Feel free to use any tomatoes
Two cans of smoked sardines. In olive oil, please
1 tsp of your favorite herb. I like Basil.
Half a packet of gnocchi.
Salt and pepper to taste

All you need is an appetite for good food and some adventure :)

Prepare the gnocchi according to package directions. Drain and reserve. In a skillet, add all the other ingredients. Saute briefly. The oil of the sardines is all you need. Add the Gnocchi. Saute for another minute. Serve it and have it...with some dry red to boot

A cure for yourself...and others
Happy eating and healthy living!
