Servings: 4


  • 1 pound gnocchi fresh or shelf-stable
  • 2 bell peppers cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 red onion cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 yellow squash cut into 1-inch rounds
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons prepared pesto
  • ½ lemon zest + juice
  • grated parmesan cheese for serving


  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a sheet tray with aluminum foil or use a non-stick sheet tray.
  • Place 1 pound fresh or frozen gnocchi, 2 bell peppers cut into chunks, 1 red onion cut into chunks, and 1 yellow squash cut into rounds on the sheet tray. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and season liberally with salt and pepper. Toss to fully combine and spread the mixture out evenly on the sheet tray.
  • Roast, stirring halfway through, until the gnocchi are plump and the vegetables are tender and caramelized, about 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, combine 2 tablespoons pesto,  juice and zest of ½ a lemon in a small bowl and mix to combine.
  • Remove from the oven and carefully drizzle pesto lemon mixture over veggies and gnocchi; mix to evenly combine.
  • For serving, spoon the gnocchi and vegetable mixture into individual bowls and garnish each bowl with fresh basil and grated cheese, if desired.


  • Serve gnocchi and veggies with crusty bread and a big green salad.


  • Veggies: Substitute the yellow squash for zucchini. Grape tomatoes are also great in this recipe. You can swap them for the bell peppers or just toss them into the mix.
  • Protein: Serve with a rotisserie chicken or reduce vegetables and add cut sausage to sheet tray.
  • Gluten-free: DeLallo makes an awesome Gluten Free Gnocchi.
  • Other: Swap store bought pesto for homemade pesto.


  • Slice vegetables in advance and store in an airtight container.
  • Make pesto lemon vinaigrette and store in an airtight container or mason jar.
