Gnocchi with vegetables

I had this pack of gnocchi sitting in the pantry for a long time. I had bought it initially to make it with sage and butter sauce (recipe I read somewhere but forgot where) Finally after getting sage a couple of times and forgetting about making gnocchi with it I decided to make it with whatever I had in hand.
1 packet of gnocchi (about 2 cups)
1 large onion chopped
2-3 cloves of garlic grated
1 bay leaf
A few sprigs of thyme
Black pepper and salt to taste
Mushrooms sliced
Broccoli florets (1/2 cup)
Marinara sauce to serve on the side
Olive oil and butter to cook
Sour cream


Boil the gnocchi as per directions on the package. It takes very little time (about 1-2 minutes) Keep aside.
Heat some olive oil and a little butter in a pan and add  the bay leaf, onions and garlic and fresh thyme leaves, saute till the onions are turn golden brown. Now add the mushrooms and broccoli. Sprinkle the salt and pepper and mix in the gnocchi. Mix well and serve it with marinara sauce topped with sour cream. Gnocchi also tastes great with basil pesto and  fresh tomatoes topped with toasted pine nuts.
