Gnocchi in Parmesan Garlic Sauce

Kathleen and I were in Aldi the other day when we came across a package of gnocchi and decided to try it! It was super easy and dorm friendly! 

Gnocchi in Parmesan Garlic Sauce 

1 pound gnocchi (or other pasta)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter (1/2 stick)
2 cloves garlic, grated
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan
1/4 cup cooking liquid
fresh cracked pepper

Cook gnocchi according to the package instructions (I like to salt the water). Be sure to reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid. (Jenna's notes: I saved and used nearly 1 cup!)

In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the garlic and saute for 1 minute (stirring constantly. Add the cooked and drained gnocchi, top with Parmesan, and cooking liquid. Stir until nice and creamy. Reduce heat to a low simmer and allow the liquid to reduce (about 3-4 minutes). Season with salt and pepper to taste.
