Ingredients for 2

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

  • 1/2 sweet onion, thinly sliced

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 1/2 cup frozen peas

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan


  • Step 1

    Set the Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 183ºF (84ºC).

  • Step 2

    Transfer the gnocchi to a large zipper lock bag and seal, squeezing out as much air as possible.

  • Step 3

    Place the bag in the water bath, wedge close to the circulator, and use two clips to prevent it from floating. Set the timer for 30 minutes, or up to 1 1/2 hours.

    • Step 3

      Stir in the gnocchi and stir to coat with the cream sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

      Transfer to a plate plate and serve, if you don’t eat it before it gets out of the pan!
