This hearty pasta dish is the perfect post-workout dinner – delicious, filling and super quick and easy.
This is one of my guilty pleasures and makes for a great meal on a workout day. It’s a tasty dish with a range of different textures and flavours to enjoy, from the crunchy cheese on top to the al dente gnocchi and its delicious tomato sauce.
Gnocchi and Tomato Bake
- 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 1 red pepper, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
- 400g tin chopped tomatoes
- 500g gnocchi
- a handful of basil, roughly chopped
- 125g mozzarella ball, drained and torn into chunks
1 Preheat the grill to high. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, then soften the onion and red pepper for 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and fry for 1 minute, then tip in the tomatoes and gnocchi and bring to a simmer. Bubble for 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the gnocchi are soft and the sauce has thickened.
2 Season, stir through the basil, then transfer to a large ovenproof dish. Scatter with the mozzarella, then grill for 5-6 minutes until the cheese is bubbling and golden.
