Cauliflower Gnocchi with Creamy Green Pea Pesto

Trader Joe's has a pretty clean Cauliflower Gnocchi made mostly of cauliflower, and some potatoes. It's a wonderful meal starter that I keep in my freezer for fast and healthy dinner bases. It's pretty easy to also make your own gnocchi at home–I will save that for another post :) 
I use a half of an avocado with green peas and herbs for an herby pea pesto that provides some protein and delicious flavor to enjoy in this complete and simple meal.
