Gnocchi with Brown Butter Sauce

10410577_10152776641940759_7095539157681312170_nAnother one of my genius/no food in the house concoctions. This was a big hit with the boyfriend.

Ingredients:
1 Package of gnocchi
Handful of broccoli
Jalapeno chicken sausage, sliced
1/2 stick butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 small shallot, minced

Directions:
1. In medium saucepan, add butter, garlic and shallots. Cook on low, until butter turns slightly brown. Wait until all the foaming subsides.
2. Meanwhile, cook your gnocchi in a pot of boiling water. It is done when it floats to the top. Strain.
3. In another pan, cook the broccoli and sausage.
4. Add the cooked gnocchi to your butter pan.
5. Toss with the chicken sausage and broccoli.
6. Sprinkle with a bit of shredded Parmesan.

Pita Pizza

If you haven’t already figured it out, I like quick recipes. But quick, doesn’t have to mean it lacks flavor.

I got this idea from the FitGirlsGuide 28 Day Jump-start.

This program has taught me I can still eat all my favorite foods, and be healthy.

PIZZA.

In particular, buffalo chicken pizza *swoon*

1 whole grain pita
Franks Red Hot Sauce
Shredded Chicken
Part-skim Mozzarella cheese
Green onions
Broccoli

Bake in a hot oven, directly on the rack, at 400F for 10 minutes. I like to eat this along with a side of fruit, usually strawberries.
