Gnocchi with lemon

I am a spoiled wife.  I got home last night and Dan wasn’t home, which was no surprise, but there was no dinner and no note.  As I searched high and low for sign about what he made for me, I thought to myself that I am SO spoiled.  I didn’t even consider making my own dinner.


What am I, a child?  Like really?  Unfortunately the answer is yes because I didn’t get to cooking.  I’m glad I didn’t though since Dan had a delicious meal on tap.  I love gnocchi, I love lemon zest and I love parmesan cheese.  So yum!
