(680 g) gnocchi
(homemade or store-bought)
(450 g) cherry tomatoes
(200 g) tomato passata
(225 g) mozzarella cheese
(shredded or cut into cubes)
fresh basil leaves
extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper
Heat the olive oil on a oven-proof pan over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant.
Add cherry tomatoes and sauté for about 5 minutes, using the back of the spoon, crush a bit the tomatoes so they burst open and release their juices.
Add tomato passata and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add basil leaves tearing them with your hands and mix everything.
Low the heat and simmer for about 5 minutes stirring from time to time until the sauce thickens a bit. Set aside.
Cook gnocchi as indicated in the package. Meanwhile, turn on your oven broil.
Once gnocchi are cooked, strain them and then add them to the pan with the tomato sauce. Toss to coat well.
Add ⅔ of mozzarella cheese and gently mix. Top with the remaining mozzarella, and a few basil leaves.
Place the pan under the broil until the mozzarella on top is bubbly and lightly golden.
