Jen's Pesto Chicken and Gnocchi with Broccoli

I still feel about like the texture of dirt. This is an easy dinner that comes together fast.

Jen's Pesto Chicken and Gnocchi with Broccoli

1 package of dried gnocchi (I find mine at Trader Joe's)
2 cooked chicken breast, cubed
1 package of frozen broccoli, steamed cooked
1 bottle or package of pesto
additional olive oil to taste
salt and pepper to taste
grated Parmesan cheese to taste

Cook gnocchi according to package directions, drain and place in large bowl. Add cooked, cubed chicken to gnocchi. Add steamed broccoli to bowl. Add whole container of pesto to bowl and toss with additional olive oil, salt and pepper. Once all ingredients are well coated, spoon servings onto plates or bowls and sprinkle top with Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

The Result:
I always forget about this dinner, but I really, really love it. It is so easy and fast, and always delicious. I need to remember to keep this dinner in the current rotation.

Looks great. I think I will sub the gnocchi with a diff. pasta. Sometimes it is just too ....not sure how to describe it but maybe "heavy" for my taste.
Good job.
