Pea Pesto Cauliflower Gnocchi🌱

So the holidays are over, my body is craving leafy greens and veggies of all sorts. I’ve been hiding them in everything i make, smoothies, sauces, muffins, you name it. I got in all of my greens here, this creamy pesto pea sauce is loaded with leafy greens and nutrients that I am craving after holiday eating and it is heavenlyy! I cooked the Trader Joe’s cauliflower gnocchi to keep them nice and soft for this dish and paired it with some turkey meatballs.
