It is no surprise that I am digging this gnocchi bake. It's got all the elements of a great meal: PHILLY CHEESESTEAK. I mean, 3 1/2 years ago if you told me Philly cheesesteak anything was for a meal, I would probably have fake gagged and made a distasteful face to go along with it. I made my own Phillies during one of Nick's deployments because it's one of his favorite foods and that was it. I suddenly found myself liking Philly cheesesteak anything. I've been all sorts of cheesesteak goodies and I know Nick absolutely loves that I am just as obsessed with cheesesteaks now :)

I am also completely obsessed with my cast iron skillet! Nick and I just celebrated 10 years of being together and he got me another cast iron skillet from the Lodge Cast Iron Factory. I hope we can get into a house soon, so I can use them! :) So basically this recipe is just everything that is right in the world and super delicious!
