Ingredients
  • 400g Fluffy potatoes such as Maris Piper or King Edwardpeeled and cubed
  • 150g plain flour
  • Salt and milled pepper
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onionfinely chopped
  • 3 garlic clovescrushed
  • 2 tins of chopped tomatoesor fresh chopped tomatoes
  • 10 basil leaveschopped
  • Parmesan cheese to serve
Instructions
  1. Cook the potatoes in salted boiling water until tender, drain and mash, trying to make sure the potatoes are as lump free as possible.
  2. Place the mash into a bowl, season with salt and milled pepper add the flour and using a fork bring the mixture together to form a dough. Knead for a couple of minutes.
  3. Split the dough into 2 and then roll each into a sausage shape. Cut the dough into 2cm pieces and using the back of a fork press gently each gnocchi to give an authentic look.
  4. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil.
  5. Meanwhile for the sauce, simply fry the onion and garlic in the olive oil over a low heat until soft, add the tinned tomatoes and season with a little salt and milled pepper. Cook down until the sauce becomes thick. About 10 minutes. Stir in the basil.
  6. Cook the gnocchi in the boiling water until they rise to the surface, drain. If you fancy a bit more texture in your dish then toss the strained gnocchi in a hot frying pan with some oil to crisp up the edges a little. Mix the gnocchi with the tomato sauce and serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and extra basil. Delicious!
