Ingredients:

  • Olive Oil
  • Tomatoes (fresh or canned)
  • Garlic
  • Heavy Cream
  • Gnocchi (store-bought or homemade)
  • Water
  • Mozzarella Cheese

 

Instructions:

  1. Start by heating some olive oil in a large skillet. Add minced garlic and sauté until it becomes fragrant but not browned. Then, toss in the tomatoes. If you’re using fresh tomatoes, crush them with a fork. Let them simmer for a few minutes to create a rich, flavorful sauce.
  2. Stir in some heavy cream, which will transform your tomato sauce into a creamy delight. Be sure to stir continuously to create a smooth, luscious texture.
  3. Add your gnocchi to the pan. If you’re using store-bought, follow the package instructions. If you’ve made your own, just let them cook until they float to the surface.
  4. If your sauce has thickened too much, add a bit of water to achieve the desired consistency. This step is crucial to prevent your dish from becoming too heavy.
  5. Finally, add generous amounts of mozzarella cheese on top. Cover the skillet and let the cheese melt.
