Delightful and Quick meal

This recipe seemed to be one of my husband's favorite meal. He couldn't stop raving about it while he was having the meal and after the meal. I did to someone adjustment, i used the mushroom we had on hand and reduced the thickened cream to 150ml. Put a tsp of black garlic, dash of paprika, cumin, basil, salt and pepper. It"s flavorful and rich.

I enjoyed preparing this dish, it's step by step, quick-ish and easy. Use the best gnocchi you can find or make your own, it's central to the success of the dish, equal to the mushrooms. I used the 'tip' re the cream/stock amounts and don't think it detracts. The flavour is great.
