Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter, plus 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 pound white button mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary, leaves finely chopped
  • A couple sprigs thyme, leaves chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped or grated
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 pound chopped cooked turkey meat
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 pounds gnocchi
  • A few grates nutmeg
  • Grated Parmesan or Gruyere, for topping

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

In a Dutch oven, heat the extra-virgin olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, rosemary, thyme and bay leaf and cook until the mushrooms are lightly brown, about 7 to 8 minutes. Stir in the onions and garlic and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Raise the heat a bit and cook 5 minutes more. Stir in the tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce and stock. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer. Add the turkey and heat until the mixture bubbles, then turn off heat and cool. Store in the refrigerator for a make-ahead meal.

Reheat the sauce, in a covered pot, over medium heat, then uncover the pot and stir in the cream. Simmer over low heat.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over medium heat. Salt the water and add the gnocchi. Cook until they float, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Drain the gnocchi and them to the pot. Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter and season with a hint of freshly grated nutmeg. Serve in shallow bowls topped with lots of chunky, creamy sauce and some cheese.

Cook's Note

Stir in any leftover mushrooms from the roasted mushroom meal mid-week.
