Ingredients list


  • First, heat some olive oil in a large frying pan. Add the peeled garlic and sauté lightly.
    1 clove garlic, olive oil extra virgin
  • Deglaze with the strained tomatoes, add chopped basil to taste. Season with salt and mix well. Simmer on low heat with the lid closed for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally during this process.
    600 g strained tomatoes, basil, salt
  • In the meantime, bring a pot of well-salted water to the boil. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F top/bottom heat.
  • Drain the mozzarella and cut into small cubes.
    250 g mozzarella cheese
  • Once the sauce has simmered long enough, remove the garlic. Then cover the bottom of the baking dish with a ladleful of sauce and drizzle with a little olive oil.
  • Put the gnocchi into the boiling salted water and cook briefly. As soon as they rise to the surface, drain them with a slotted spoon directly into the pan with the sauce. Mix everything carefully.

  • Then put about half of the gnocchi with tomato sauce in the casserole dish. Evenly distribute half of the mozzarella cubes and parmesan on top.
