Garlic Bread Alternative: A Fresh Twist
Garlic bread is undoubtedly a crowd-pleaser, but if you're looking to lighten up your meal or add a refreshing element, consider serving mushroom gnocchi with a nice green salad. The crisp and vibrant greens, combined with a tangy dressing, create a perfect contrast to the savory flavors of the gnocchi.
