Serves: 2-4 servings
  • 1 lb Gnocchi
  • 1 cup canned crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup/8 oz ball of fresh Mozzarella cheese, sliced in ¼ inch slices
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Fresh chopped parsley for garnish
  1. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Cook the gnocchi as per package directions.
  3. In an oven friendly skillet* over medium heat, saute garlic in olive until translucent.
  4. Stir in crushed tomatoes and kick up the heat to bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat, season with salt and pepper and let simmer for five minutes.
  6. When gnocchi is ready, drain it and transfer it to to the tomato sauce skillet.
  7. Stir well so that all of the gnocchi is covered with tomato sauce.
  8. Spread the sliced Mozzarella evenly onto the gnocchi mixture and pop into the oven for 20 to 25 minutes - until the top is golden and bubbling.
  9. Serve hot.
  10. * I would not recommend using a cast iron skillet for this dish. I did and discovered that because the gnocchi is so mild in flavour, it absorbed a lot of the iron taste from the pan.
