  • 2 Tbsp sun-dried tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1–2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 2 lbs prepared gnocchi
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan

  1. Defrost, drain and peel prawns as needed.
  2. Drain crab meat, if needed.
  3. In a small bowl, soak sun-dried tomatoes and pine nuts in olive oil.
  4. Fill large pot with water and bring to a boil. 
  5. Melt butter in saucepan and add cream. Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously just until it comes to boil; turn down to a simmer.
