Emma’s Bites – Gnocchi Bake

Welcome back to another weekly addition of my foodie bites. This week we are going for a one pot easy Peary cheap meal. The best kind I find!
This week is all about gnocchi. If you haven’t tried it it’s pasta with the texture of potato. Now it’s quite filling so it is up to you if you use one or two packs for this but I guess it depends on how many people your serving it too.
Get a dish and put your gnocchi in the dish and set aside while you make your sauce. This won’t take long.
You will need a jug, tinned tomatoes, tomato purée, worcestershire sauce, stock cube (chicken or veg), ginger, cayenne pepper, paprika, basil, garlic, breadcrumbs and mozzarella cheese.
Add the tinned tomatoes to the jug and then; 3 tablespoons of tomato purée, 3 teaspoons basil, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 3 teaspoons paprika, 2 teaspoons garlic, 2 teaspoons ground ginger and salt.

Mix it all together and then add a few dashes of worcestershire sauce and may be about 200/300ml of stock depending on how much sauce you want. Pour the sauce over the gnocchi.

For veg I recommend adding red onions and peppers to this. You could add spinach but I’m not a huge fan. Mix that all on and I would say cook for about 10/12 minutes on about 180. I always guess so just check it and text and see what you think. At this point you need to add the cheese and the breadcrumbs after and cook for a further few minutes until melted and then serve.

If you desperately want meat with it I recommend getting some Parma ham, spray a tray with fry light and cook in the oven until crispy and then pop it on top of your gnocchi when it’s on the plate.
Quick, easy to do, simple, no fuss, one pot dish and it’s slimming world and calorie friendly if your into that. Plus it’s great for both meat eaters and vegetarians!
