Reviewed cheesy gnocchi casserole with ham and peas

4 days ago on

Pretty starchy, including the high-starch peas. Never cooked gnocchi before, but knew I couldn't go wrong with potato balls! Unfortunately, they were sticky, heavy. Lots of leftovers. Best thing I did was reheat, put on toast, topped with a fried egg for breakfast. That was better than the original supper.

I don't get where it says you have to put it in and take it out of the oven over and over. Sear the chicken and put it in the oven to cook.

It was pretty good. I'm an experienced cook and this took more than 2 hours to prepare. I had a bunch of heirloom tomatoes from my garden so, with the help of my food mill, I made my own tomato sauce. I also added two bunches of fresh raw spinach into the cheese mixture. I felt it would be too much of a gut-bomb without it. I couldn't find ziti, so...

It's a good thing you're here to tell Bobby Flay what to do. A burrito is encased, a taco is folded. A crunchy taco is American. An authentic Mexican taco is soft, using a corn or a flour tortilla. Bobby's fish tacos are made with small flour tortillas. This is a taco.

This is so good! It makes a huge amount, so I'll be making it for the 4th of July. My mom's is just about like this except she would cut very sharp cheddar cheese into little cubes and add it. Sometimes she would add cubed ham. After the party, it's good the next day too!

It was really good, and fed us for days! It does take longer than you would think because there are lots of steps. I used 4 whole eggs -not just egg whites since I love eggs. I also jazzed up the sauce based on a fried rice recipe from an Asian friend of mine. Along with the soy, I added a touch of sesame oil, garlic chili paste, oyster sauce, fish...

Don't post your opinion if you haven't bothered to make the dish. This forum is supposed to be helpful, your post is not even close to that. Who cares if you're are going to grate an onion into it?

I'm thinking you made a different recipe than the one listed here. The leeks are easy: three bunches, cut lengthwise. You roast them that way so there is more surface area to roast. So you just take those three bunches of cut leeks that you roasted and put them in a blender. Gives the butter a wonderful sweet oniony taste. Not that hard. And there...
