Gnocchi with Summer Squash, Corn, and Goat Cheese

Well Dined | Gnocchi with Summer Squash, Corn, and Goat Cheese

I find it hard to come up with dinner ideas in the summer, I don't know if anyone else has this problem.  All I want to do is snack on fruit, salads, or fresh tomatoes with cheese.  And I definitely don't want to hang out in the kitchen for too long.  But this?  I would seriously make this every week if my husband would let me.  This is the BEST summer dish ever.  Gnocchi, summer squash, and fresh sweet corn sauteed in butter and topped with goat cheese, basil, chives, and a splash of lemon juice - perfection.  Plus (other than boiling the water), it takes less than 10 minutes to put together!

Just look at it, you know you want it.  Warm and filling, but not heavy, with bright pops of veg and fresh herbs, it's the goat cheese that sends it over the edge into awesome territory.  If you crumble the cheese on top and don't stir it in, then you get a little bit of melted creaminess but also bits of cold that really compliment the gnocchi.  Also, I used goat butter - cuz I'm FANCY... and it's delicious.

I served it as a side dish with salmon, but it would go well with chicken and it's perfect on it's own, as well.  Swing by your local farmer's market, snag some fresh produce, and let's get cooking!
