Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Arugula

The gnocchi at the Ratty makes me happy. Did you know that it's pronounced "neeYAW-kee"? If you are curious how to pronounce all the other Italian dishes, feel free to take the trolley down to Federal Hill's Mediterraneo, a cute little restaurant where they post their menu on the window, with pronunciations for everything!

Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Arugula
1 bed of arugula
1 serving of gnocchi alla sorrentina
1/3 cup sliced mushrooms
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

1. Microwave mushrooms and olive oil in a bowl until mushrooms are just cooked through, about 1 minute.
2. Plate the arugula, gnocchi, and mushrooms, and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
