  1. Heat the oil in a medium pan over a medium heat. Fry the onion and garlic for 8-10 mins until soft. Add the chorizo and fry for 5 mins more. Tip in the tomatoes and sugar, and season. Bring to a simmer, then add the gnocchi and cook for 8 mins, stirring often, until soft. Heat the grill to high.

  2. Stir ¾ of the mozzarella and most of the basil through the gnocchi. Divide the mixture between six ovenproof ramekins, or put in one baking dish. Top with the remaining mozzarella, then grill for 3 mins, or until the cheese is melted and golden. Season, scatter over the remaining basil and serve with green salad.

This dish was family and I devoured it!!! I didn't change anything in the recipe, except at the end I put it all in 9x13 casserole dish and baked it for about 25 minutes to get cheese on top slightly brown and bubbly!!! I will definitely be making this again!

We really liked this although as a bit of a recipe 'fiddler' for half the recipe I added fresh chilli, 1tsp smoked paprika, mixed peppers, mushrooms and black olives. Would definitely make again and could easily use pasta.
