salt & pepper
knob of butter
1 clove garlic
1 brown onion
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/3 cup beef or vege stock
1 packet gnocci
sprig of rosemary
sprig of thyme
150g bacon or 1 courgette
50g grated cheese
30g finely grated parmesan
Finely chop the garlic, rosemary, thyme, brown onion and bacon and/or courghette. Grate the carrot.
In a large frying pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil over a medium to high heat. Add the onion, garlic, carrot, rosemary, thyme, bacon and/or courghette, and butter. Season with salt & pepper and cook until softened, 5-6 minutes.
While the veggies are simmering, heat a drizzle of olive oil in another large frying pan over a medium to high heat. When the oil is hot, add the gnocci in a single layer and fry until golden, 6-8 minutes. Add more olive oil if it sticks to pan. Season with salt & pepper.
Add tomato paste to the pan with veggies and cook while stirring for about a minute. Add tin of chopped tomatoes, butter and stock and season with salt & pepper. Stir to combine and keep simmering until fragrant, about 5-7 minutes.
Pre-heat the grill, spread the vege mixture over a medium sized oven proof dish and top with the fried gnocci. Top with the grated cheese, and finely grated parmesan. Grill for 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted and golden.
Divide the dish into serving plates - best served with a glass of red wine and sourdough of course!
