Whole wheat gnocchi topped with savory turkey Bolognese sauce and melted cheese.
- In a large saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery. Cook until softened, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

- Add garlic and tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes. Add wine and cook for 3-4 minutes.
- Add crushed tomatoes, oregano, and crushed red pepper. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for at least 45 minutes.
- Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Cook gnocchi according to package instructions. Drain.
- Heat broiler on high.
- Add fresh parsley to sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper, if necessary.
- Toss gnocchi with half of the Bolognese. Place in an oven-safe casserole dish. Top with remaining Bolognese, and sprinkle with cheeses.
- Broil until cheese melts and begins to brown, 3-4 minutes.
