Pan fry the gnocchi: Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add in gnocchi and cook until golden brown and crispy on the outside, 2-3 minutes. Make sure to keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn.
Toss gnocchi with pesto: Add the pesto to the pan and toss to coat the gnocchi. Serve immediately with extra parmesan for sprinkling if desired.
