This cozy cauliflower casserole is filled with chewy gnocchi pasta pillows and Parmesan cheese, and it’s seriously easy to make.


  • 1 medium head cauliflower
  • 17-ounce package gnocchi
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper


  1. Cut the cauliflower into florets.
  2. In a large pot of water, boil the cauliflower for 3 minutes, then throw in the gnocchi. Cook for 2 more minutes or until the gnocchi floats, then turn the burner off and strain everything.
  3. Put the cauliflower and gnocchi back in the hot pot and stir in 3/4 cup of the Parmesan cheese plus the butter, olive oil, several grinds of black pepper and a few pinches of kosher salt until the flavor pops.
  4. Spread the mixture into an 8 x 8-inch casserole dish. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese on top, plus a bit more salt and pepper.
  5. Boil for 3 minutes until the top is golden.
