Gnocchi Casserole

Yeah, Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi is good but, have you ever put it in a casserole? All you need are a few simple ingredients and you let the oven do the rest of the work. Nutritious & delicious. Enjoy!

Casseroles are becoming my new favorite thing to make. They’re so easy. I’ve been thriving off of easy, quick and simple meal preps this semester. I’ve been digging baked oatmeal, budda bowls, salads, casseroles, egg bakes, and french toast bakes. Allll about the bakes. Stay tuned for more recipes and blog posts like this one.

This is the lazy girl casserole. When you want something filling and nutritious but don’t have much time or effort. Insert this casserole. It’s got veggies from the cauliflower gnocchi and broccoli. Carbohydrates from the tempeh and cauliflower gnocchi. Protein from the tempeh/chicken and eggs. And it has healthy fat from the coconut milk and eggs. What more could you need?
