gnocchi with creamy pesto sauce | The Baking Fairy

As y’all may remember, I made some homemade pesto a couple of weeks ago, and it was so delicious! But, as you may have ALSO noticed, the recipe made a few cups of sauce, and seeing as there is only one of me, I have literally been stuffing pesto in every-single-thing in an effort to use it up. I’ve mostly been using it plain in pasta, or as a marinade for chicken {which is totally delicious}, but pesto has such a strong, distinctive flavor and after a while, you just get plain sick of it.

I LOVE fall. I love it I love it I love it. I don’t know if it’s because of the cooler weather {thank goodness}, or the football games, or the pumpkin in all-of-the-things, but it’s basically my favorite time of the year. My first semester of college, once the weather finally cooled off, I loved…
