Ham and Cheese Gnocchi

Author: Canadian Living

Be sure to buy the gnocchi pasta, not the fresh or frozen potato-based dumplings, for this very homey, comforting dish. If you can't find the corn with bits of colourful sweet peppers in it, just use ordinary corn kernels. Got a few extra moments and some sprigs of parsley? Chop them to sprinkle on your pasta, restaurant-style.

  • Portion size 2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup diced ham
  • 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 can drained Mexicorn kernels
  • 2 cups Gnocchi pasta
  • 2 cups medium shell pasta

Method

In skillet, melt butter over medium heat; cook onion, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until softened. Sprinkle with flour and pepper; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk in milk and mustard; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir in ham, cheese and corn.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for 6 to 8 minutes or until tender but firm. Drain and return to pot. Add sauce; toss to coat.
