When I make this I chop the mushrooms in a small food processor. I love mushrooms, but my husband isn’t such a fan of them. It isn’t the flavor he dislikes, it’s the texture.
But, I’ve found that if I chop them up really fine, almost to a puree, he doesn’t mind them. If you want to try chopping them in the food processor, make sure to cut them in quarters first, otherwise they’ll just bounce around on the food processor blades.
*For those of you who are new to my blog, I don’t work for Island Trollers, I just adore them! I did get some tuna from them in exchange for writing some recipes.
But, I do it because I love them, not because they pay me. Check out where I talk about experiencing the tuna and how I got to know them in my Tuna Chowder post.

Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Island Trollers Albacore Tuna Recipe
Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Tuna
- 16 ounces potato gnocchi
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 leeks cleaned, white and light green parts chopped
- 1 cup finely chopped mushrooms
- ¾ cup milk
- ¼ cup half-and-half
- ½ teaspoon ground garlic
- ¼ teaspoon white pepper
- 7.5 ounces Island Trollers Tuna undrained*
- 2 ounces Parmesan cheese shaved
- 1 tablespoon Fresh thyme leaves
- Preheat oven to 425 ° F. Lightly oil a 13×9 baking dish; set aside. In a large pot cook gnocchi according to package directions; drain.
- Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once oil is hot and shimmering, cook leeks until they begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Turn heat down to medium, and add mushrooms, garlic, and pepper, cooking until mushrooms release their liquid and begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in milk and half-and-half. Simmer, uncovered, for about 5, minutes or until liquid begins to thicken. Fold in gnocchi, tuna, and any liquid from the tuna. Transfer to the prepared dish.
- Bake, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and thyme leaves. Let stand for 5 minutes.
