Juan Colorado Leftovers

I'm not a big fan of leftovers in their original form so I tend to trick them out in different recipes.

This week I made two dishes; one from left over scallop fajitas and one from leftover beef enchiladas from our local Mexican place, Juan Colorado.

Scallops with Gnocchi in a Wine Veloute Sauce

Makes 2 servings

20 homemade gnocchi
6 scallops
1/2 c mix of onions,peppers, mushrooms from fajitas
2 tbs olive oil
2 tbs flour
1 c unoaked Chardonnay
1/2 c milk
1/c grated Trader Joes white semi-hard cheese with potatoes
fresh chiffonade of basil

Boil salted water in large pot. Add gnocchi cook until they float to the top of the water.

In small saucepan heat oil, add flour and stir until bubbling and frothy. Add milk slowly, then add wine slowly stir until thickened into a sauce. Add pepper mix, cheese and scallops until heated through. Toss gnocchi in sauce, plate and add basil on top.
