Your kids might avoid gnocchi and shrimp like they were real bugs, but this healthy and delicious recipe will have them singing Hakuna Matata!
Start a pot of boiling water.
In a large bowl, add mashed potatoes, flour, Parmesan cheese, chopped parsley, paprika, nutmeg, salt, pepper and the egg. Knead the mixture until it becomes dough and then form into a ball.
On a cutting board, roll the dough out into a snake roll about the thickness of your finger.
Use a fork to cut the roll into 1/2 inch pieces. Now let’s make some ‘grubs’ out of our gnocchi!
Take the gnocchi and roll them down the tines of a fork. Looks like a grub, doesn't it?
Drop the gnocchi into your boiling water. When they float to the top they are done. Place gnocchi grubs on a tray and set aside.
In a sauté pan over medium high heat add olive oil and sauté your blanched broccoli and cherry tomatoes for 3-5 minutes.
Next, add your cocktail shrimp to the broccoli and tomatoes and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Add your grubs to the pan and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Plate and enjoy!
