Cheesy Chicken and Veggie Gnocchi Bake

Have you ever heard of Gnocchi?  I have seen a couple of recipes using this ingredient, and I had no idea what it was.  The other day at Sam's Club, I came across these...

Well, for those of you who don't know, it's pronounced "No-Kee" and Gnocchi are kind of a potato dumpling and they look like this...

I made up this recipe based on some ideas I read about, and it turned out pretty good.  Next week some time, I will be trying a Kopy Cat recipe called Olive Garden Gnocchi Soup using this ingredient.

 Cheesy Chicken and Veggie Gnocchi Bake

1/4 c minced onion flakes
3/4 c carrot, shredded
1 c. broccoli
1 t olive oil
2 c cooked chicken breasts, shredded
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t dried parsley
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken
17 1/2 oz gnocchi
1 c cheddar cheese, shredded

Bring water to boil in a large pot.  Add Gnocchi and cook according package directions.  Set aside.  Heat a nonstick pan and add the oil. Put the onion flakes and veggies with the oil and cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently,  until the veggies have softened.  Add the cooked chicken to the pan with the veggies and  stir to combine. Add the cans of soup to the pan along with the garlic powder and parsley. Put  the cooked and drained gnocchi  on the bottom of the 9x13 pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Top with the chicken and veggie mixture. Sprinkle with cheese and put in a 350 degree oven until the cheese is melted.
