Gnocchi with spicy sauce.
This is a fabulous dish. Tasty, fancy and easy.
I never make enough because you can’t stop eating.
Great as a main dish or a terrific side.
This is what I made on Monday night and it was so good.
2 packages of dried gnocchi
one large can of diced tomatoes plus one small can of diced tomatoes
one can of Rotelle tomatoes, this is a diced tomato with green chilies
one chopped onion
four cloves of minced garlic
six tablespoons of olive oil
two tablespoons of sugar
four tablespoons of capers with the brine
one container of small mozzarella balls, drained
eight basil leaves
Heat oil in a heavy saucepan
Saute onion and garlic till soft
Add all the tomatoes, sugar, basil and capers
Bring to a boil then simmer.
Boil water in a big pot. Add salt and cook the gnocchi. When the gnocchi floats to the top of the water, test one. They should be cooked. Remove with a slotted spoon and put into the sauce. Let the pasta and sauce cook together for about five minutes.
Take off the stove and add the mozzarella balls. Pour into a platter . Top with romano cheese.
Serve in bowls or as a side dish.
This all takes about 30 minutes and so well worth it.
