Ready in 30 minutes, this sheet pan gnocchi with mushrooms, asparagus, roasted garlic and lemon is a quick & easy meal that uses store-bought gnocchi.
- 1 pound shelf-stable or fresh gnocchi
- 8 ounces sliced white mushrooms
- 3 garlic cloves in their skins
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 lemon, halved
- 1/2 pound asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
- Chopped parsley and shaved Parmesan for serving
- Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
- On a sheet pan, toss the gnocchi, mushrooms and garlic with 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper. Spread into a single layer. Place the lemon halves cut-side down on the sheet pan. Roast for 15 minutes
- Scatter the asparagus on the pan and continue roasting for 8-10 minutes until the mushrooms are browned, the gnocchi is cooked through and the asparagus is bright green.
- Carefully squeeze the garlic cloves out of their skins into a large bowl. Use tongs to squeeze in the juice from the lemon. Whisk in 1 tablespoon olive oil and mash everything together with a fork. Spoon the gnocchi, mushrooms and asparagus into the bowl, gently stirring to combine.
- Fold in parsley and Parmesan before serving.
You can save leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days. Warm them in the microwave or in a 350-degree F oven.
You can also eat leftovers cold as a salad. Add your favorite greens and vinaigrette. I recommend roughly chopping the gnocchi if you are planning to eat it this way.

Silly question: do you cook the gnocchi first?
You don’t need to cook it first. The gnocchi will cook on the sheet pan. It is my favorite way to cook packaged gnocchi because it gets crisp on the edges.
