If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram you know I have been busy in the kitchen lately. I made a big batch of pierogies to freeze and the same with gnocchi. There was also a Challah-day and a big batch of oatmeal craisin cookies.

But I am happiest when I am in my kitchen. Even if Fang is not.

I took some of those gnocchi I made the other day and we had them for dinner with a quick, fresh tomato sauce. It made for an easy and delicious dinner.

Gnocchi with Fresh Tomato Sauce

Serves 2

Parmesan cheese for grating if desired

Make the Sauce:

  • Peel the tomatoes and chop into small dice.
  • Heat the olive oil in a fry pan until hot, add the garlic and swirl, stirring to keep from burning.
  • Add the tomatoes and let them cook until they get very soft and start to break down.
  • Add the balsamic vinegar, stir, smashing the tomatoes to form a sauce. Stir in the herbs.
  • Taste and season with salt.
  • Let simmer to thicken.

Cook the Gnocchi:

  • Heat a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add the gnocchi and cook until they float to the surface.
  • Remove the gnocchi as they float to the top and place in the tomato sauce to coat.

Serve with grated Parmesan cheese if desired.

How Were the Homemade Gnocchi with Fresh Tomato Sauce?

Really, really delicious. I’d forgotten how good gnocchi could be as it’s been a while since I’d had them. They were well worth the effort of making and I’m very glad I have more in the freezer.

I will admit that the process of making them in bulk is a bit of a pain in the tail but I am always so very happy to just be able to go out into the deep freezer and pull out a box to make for dinner. Then I appreciate the time spent in the kitchen and the efforts made to put them by.

I will note that the recipe I link to above used a ricer to make the gnocchi – this time I had an overload of mashed potatoes so I started with them and the gnocchi came out just as tasty.
