Gnocchi in Easy Tomato Sauce

Gnocchi in Easy Tomato Sauce by Ng @ Whats for Dinner?No I didn't turn leftover mash into gnocchi, but feel free to try. I wanted to a clean simple sauce to go with them. A few weeks ago one of our house mates made mussels in tomato sauce I expected it to be gross but the sauce was so good. So I recreated it, but without the mussels.

Easy Tomato Sauce
Makes 1 1/2 cups
1 tsp oil
1 onion chopped fine
1/2 shallot chopped fine (could leave out or add use a whole one)
5 cloves of smoked garlic chopped fine
1 jar/can tomato puree
1 tsp mix herbs
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp paprika
Salt and Pepper

Cook the onions, shallot and garlic in the oil on med for 3 min. The onions are still going to be a bit raw but add the tomato puree. Rinse the jar or can with water and add the water to the pan. Mix in the herbs and spices. Bring to a low boil and then lower the heat and cook for 20 min. Check for salt and pepper.

  1. This looks great. How can I make gnocchi from mash potato?

  2. Mash potato without milk, butter ect mixed with egg and flour. I've made them before, but always too heavy for my picky eater.

  3. Thanks, I ll try that!

  4. Tell your picky eater he needs to not be so picky, he is too skinny!
