This past week I had a really long day and to be honest, I just wanted to eat all the bad food I could find at the end of the day. For me many times this involves either pasta or french fries, and pasta was definitely on my mind that night. However I have been trying to not give into cravings on nights like these and instead seek out a recipe that tastes indulgent but won't totally derail my diet.

Today's recipe for Cheesy Skillet Gnocchi is just that. Although it is a little higher in calories and points than my normal dinners, it is much better than most cheesy pasta dishes that can easily have over 1000 calories.  I alos added lots of veggies to balance out the pasta and cheese. Everything in moderation.
