Ingredients list

  • 1 kg Gnocchi
  • 400 g chopped tomatoes
  • 1 ball mozzarella cheese
  • 25 ml olive oil extra virgin
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp basil chopped
  • black pepper to taste
  • salt to taste


  • Heat the olive oil in a pan and sauté the whole garlic cloves until translucent. Deglaze with the chopped tomatoes, season with salt and pepper and simmer over a gentle heat for about 20 minutes. Stir occasionally during this process.
  • In the meantime, bring a pot with plenty of salted water to a boil. Drain the mozzarella and cut into small cubes.
  • When the water reaches boiling point, add the gnocchi
  • Remove the garlic cloves from the sauce. Add the basil to the sauce and mix everything well.
  • As soon as the gnocchi rise to the surface, skim them off and add them directly to the tomato sauce in the pan and mix gently.
  • Place the gnocchi with tomato sauce in portions in deep plates, spread the diced mozzarella on top and serve immediately.
