Method

  1. Heat grill to high. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then soften the onion and pepper for 5 mins. Stir in the garlic, fry for 1 min, tip in the tomatoes and gnocchi, then bring to a simmer. Bubble for 10-15 mins, stirring occasionally, until the gnocchi is soft and the sauce has thickened. Season, stir through the basil, then transfer to a large ovenproof dish.
  2. Scatter with the mozzarella, then grill for 5-6 mins until the cheese is bubbling and golden.

I added some Chorizo it tasted great. I would say that this would serve 3 with a salad.

This was lovely, I took the skin off some sausages and made little balls and added them which made it so much nicer. Also I used grated chedder on top as I prefer the flavour.

I made this last night for the first time and it was really tasty. I had made the sauce and frozen it sevaral weeks ago to use as a standby.

I cooked the Gnocchi seperately and then added to sauce with some spinach and the mozerella and baked in the oven.

I finished the dish off with some finely grated strong goats "cheddar" just before serving.

I am going to make a large batch of the sauce for the freezer and keep a bag of Gnocchi permantley in the fridge as this is a dish that I will be making over and over again.

This was delicious and very easy to make, though i found it only served two. Wold definately make again and maybe try adding some mushrooms or spinach to give more flavour.

I didn't think that half the mozarella ball would be enough cheese but it was. This looks very homely and Italian when made.

Tried this tonight, simple and quick. I cooked the gnocchi separately and added to the sauce after it had thickened. Served 2 adults, a 2.5 and 1 year old with no leftovers - kids loved it! Nice with a green salad and crusty bread. Will definitely make again.

excellent dish! though i did add some water as the sauce was looking very thick at one point and i used all the mozzarella, how can you not really! Next time I would add some muishrooms and maybe cook it all seperately and then combine it. definitely one i'm going to make again. and oh yeah i have no idea how this would feed 4, 3 tops but then i'm about to head back for a second helping :-)

Absolutely great idea for gnocchi!!! My husband would never have them on 'traditional way',just boiled and served sprinkled with olive oil and parmesan. This time ask for more!
I used DC's suggestions: no mozarella, but some creme frache, some strong cheddar staterred on the top, and no basil- couldn't find it.
One thing- 'bubble' time is to long, I thing. Gnocchi are ready in 2-4 min and 10-15 min is far to long. I boiled the sauce for about 5-6min and was lovely!

Tasty comfort food - we added chorizo to the sauce and used goats cheese instead of mozzarella - worked well!

Simple to make, and very tasty. Half a ball of mozzarella wasnt enough- used the whole lot.
Would be nice with some pancetta or choped bacon fried in with the onions.

I added a little water too, and flavoured the sauce with a litter worcester sauce and black pepper. I was also short of basil so added a little pesto. Served with parmesan and garlic bread. Very tasty and will make again.
