Method

Tip

Invest into a good quality tomato passata, otherwise, your dish might be acidic.

  1. Chop half an onion, half garlic gloves and saute' in a frying pan in a little bit of olive oil until translucent. Add chopped tomatoes, tomato concentrate, a little bit of water, basil leaves, salt and pepper. Cook on low heat for 15-20min.

  2. Pre-heat the oven to 180-200C and cut mozzarella in cubes. Arrange gnocchi into a large ovenproof dish, cover with tomato sauce and scatter mozzarella pieces. No need to pre-cook gnocchi as our gnocchi are very soft and will cook in the oven.

  3. Bake for about 20min.

  4. Serve with a sprinkle of Parmiggiano Reggiano.
