Kale Pesto Gnocchi

From:  The food Medic

*This is delicious!  Just be careful to not don't want mushy gnocchi!

1 package potato gnocchi (I buy the whole wheat gnocchi from Trader Joes)
3 cloves garlic
1/2 cup kale
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 lemon, zested
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Put the kale, garlic, and pine nuts on a pile on a cutting board.  Start chopping...continue chopping until everything is finely chopped (see picture 1).  In a bowl, add pesto mix, lemon zest, lemon juice, and olive oil.  Mix and salt and pepper to taste.  Set aside.

In a pot of boiling salted water, add the package of gnocchi and boil over medium heat until they float...about 2 minutes.  DO NOT OVERCOOK!  They get mushy and icky!  Drain, place back in pot and add the pesto mix.  Serve warm.
