Noodles & Co., an American fast casual restaurant chain that's known for its pasta, salads, and other lunch staples, has announced that it will be adding two cauliflower gnocchi dishes to its menu.
The two new dishes include a Cauliflower Gnocchi with Roasted Garlic Cream and Cauliflower Gnocchi Rosa, both of which include about one half of the carbs that a traditional pasta dish would. The use of cauliflower in place of typical pasta also makes the dishes well-suited to diners with gluten sensitivities, as well as those looking to include more vegetables in their diets.
Noodle & Co.'s Executive Chef and VP of Culinary Nick Graff spoke to the launch, stating "Gnocchi is a classic Italian pasta that I have long enjoyed, and we've elevated it from a dish that most people view as an occasional indulgence and transformed it into a healthy and flavorful option that our guests will feel good about eating any day."
