1 pound of Brussels sprouts
1 pint of strawberries

one bag of fresh and peeled carrots
one piece of fresh and diced ginger
half a cup of fresh honey

4 large potatoes
3 cups all-purpose flour
two egg yolks in one whole egg.
2 cups of grated Parmesan cheese
2 pints heirloom cherry tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
fresh basil tops
a bag of baby spinach
one cup of toasted pine nuts
2 cloves of garlic
2 cups of olive oil
a cup of Parmesan cheese
Peel and boil four large potatoes.
When potatoes are soft remove from water and mash as smooth as possible place in the refrigerator to cool. Once the potatoes are cool, place them in a mixing bowl and add to 3 cups of all purpose flour. Mix with your hands or dough hook if you have one until it forms a dough. If you need to add more flour you can, but do not allow the dough to become sticky. Firmly roll out the dough onto a floured surface and into a snake like tube shape. Using a knife cut the snake shaped dough into equal sizes. Bring a pot of water to boil add the gnocchi (cut dough) and remove when they float.
Heat olive oil and add heirloom tomatoes and let sit for 2 minutes until blistering appears.
For the pesto, place fresh basil tops, baby spinach, toasted pine nuts, garlic cloves, olive oil and Parmesan cheese into a blender on medium speed until smooth, add additional olive oil as needed. Add salt and pepper to taste.
While the gnocchi is still hot toss with the blistered tomatoes, add the pesto and serve.
