Baked Tomato Gnocchi

April 21

Gnocchi are small pillow-like dumplings made from potato, semolina, or flour, usually served with a sauce. I love cooking with gnocchi but this baked dish with three cheeses really takes it up a notch.

Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 220˚C/425°F/Gas Mark 7. Cook the gnocchi in boiling salted water for 2-3 minutes before draining under cold water. Set aside.
  2. Heat the oil in an oven proof frying pan and add the garlic while it heats. When the oil begins to bubble gently and the garlic begins to colour slightly add in the chilli flakes and continue to cook for 2 minutes. Remove the garlic from the oil and discard.
  3. Add the passata and cream and bring to a gentle simmer. Stir through the spinach until wilted. Add the gnocchi and stir through to coat. Season with salt and add in the fresh basil leaves.
  4. Dot with ricotta and blue cheese and sprinkle generously with Parmesan. Sprinkle the top with a little water before placing in the oven to bake for 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving warm!
