Step 1

Bring a large amount of water to a boil and add the gnocchi. Once they bob to the surface, cook for an additional 2 minutes. (Or according to package directions.)

While gnocchi are cooking, melt butter over low heat in a large skillet. Stir in the lemon juice, zest, and herbs. Cook for 30 to 60 seconds. Add the shelled peas and stir to coat peas with the butter. Continue cooking until the peas are warm, 3 to 4 minutes.

Drain the gnocchi and add them to the pea mixture. Serve hot with grated parmesan cheese.
Recipe Notes

If you're unable to find fresh peas or don't want to shell fresh peas, substitute frozen peas. Thaw frozen peas before using.
