Lemon Garlic Gnocchi

Today I'm going to share the recipe for this:
It's insanely simple, delicious, and incredibly satisfying.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
- 1 package gnocchi (I swear by Trader Joe's)
- 1 clove garlic (minced)
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 Tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
- 1 tsp lemon zest
- 1-2 ounces grated Parmesan cheese
-  black pepper and salt to taste (I use about 1/4 tsp of each)
- 3-4 basil leaves (chiffonade)

HOW TO MAKE IT HAPPEN:
Step 1: Put your gnocchi into boiling water and cook as directed (usually cook until they rise to the surface, then 2 minutes after that)
Step 2: While gnocchi are cooking, whisk all the rest of your ingredients together in a large bowl
Step 3: When gnocchi are done cooking, scoop them out using a slotted spoon and put them into the bowl. This method takes an extra minute, but throwing them all into a colander and draining them makes them get all smushed up (yes, official cooking term there, smushed)
Step 4: Thoroughly mix your lemon garlic deliciousness with your gnocchi, and serve it up family style, finishing it with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and basil leaves to garnish.

So easy
close up action.
getting hungry yet?
.
aaaaand, finished.
Like I said, insanely easy. It's the perfect summer pasta dish because while it's filling- the lemon keeps it bright and lively! 

What's your go to summer dish?
