how to store a gnocchi sheet pan meal

To store your gnocchi tray bake, place in an airtight container, and refrigerate for up to 5 days. To reheat, place the leftovers on a parchment-lined baking sheet and place in a 350-degree F oven for about 10 minutes (or until warmed through). You could also reheat in the microwave or a cast-iron skillet.

gnocchi tray bake Tips

  1. If you're building your own tray bake (see below) rather than using my exact recipe, be sure to use ingredients that take about the same time to roast.
  2. Use a high smoke-point oil for roasting. Olive oil is not a good choice for tray bakes since we are roasting at a high temperature and olive oil has a low smoke-point.
  3. Dont be afraid to bake your gnocchi straight from the package! In fact, please DO NOT boil it first. Baking gnocchi makes it perfectly soft and slightly crispy on the outside.

In a pinch instructions

This recipe is already a very quick recipe, however, there are a couple of things to highlight that'll make it super quick and easy to whip up in no time.
  1. Use packaged gnocchi as the recipe calls for.
  2. Omit the lemon slices and just squeeze the juice onto the mixture.
