Looking for a burst of savory umami flavour? Have we got the recipe for you. We pan-sear fresh potato gnocchi until light browned and crispy, then add shiitake mushrooms, ground pork and onions and an arrabiata spice blend for even more flavour. Everything is coated with a thick sauce that is as creamy as it is cheesy. Quickly toss in spinach and peas and top with a sprinkling of Grana Padano cheese for a splendidly comforting and filling winter dish.

    Rehydrate the mushrooms
    In a small pot (or kettle), bring 1 cup of water to a boil (double for 4 portions). In a bowl, combine the dried shiitake mushrooms with the boiling water; let stand for at least 10 minutes while you complete the next steps.

    Cook the gnocchi
    While the mushrooms rehydrate, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the gnocchi and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, until lightly browned and slightly crispy. Transfer to a plate and set aside in a warm spot. Wipe out the pan.

    Cook the pork
    In the same pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium-high. Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until translucent. Add the ground pork and cook, breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 4 to 6 minutes or until browned and cooked through; season with the spice blend and S&P.

    Start the sauce
    To the pan of pork, add the peas, demi-glace and a ¼ cup of water (double for 4 portions). Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until the volume is slightly reduced and the peas are heated through; season with S&P to taste.

    Finish & serve
    To the pan of sauce, add the gnocchi, ½ the mushroom-soaking water, mushrooms, spinach, sour cream and ½ the cheese. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until the spinach has wilted. Divide the finished gnocchi and vegetables between your plates. Garnish with parsley (roughly chop before adding) and remaining cheese. Bon appétit!

    *Health Canada recommends cooking ground pork to a minimum internal temperature of 71°C.
