This isn’t a recipe so much as a revelation.
You know that stodgy, pre-packed gnocchi you can buy in supermarkets? Well, until just recently I thought it was absolutely inedible. Then I discovered the joys of baked gnocchi.
Simple stir your cooked gnocchi and a green (I used rocket but spinach is good too) through lots of (preferably) home-made tomato sauce and sprinkle with a moderate amount of Parmesan cheese. Bake at 190oC for 30 minutes or until the cheese has crisped up.
The formerly plasticine-like gnocchi go all crisp on top and all moist and soft underneath. Yum! Lovely jubbly with a big green salad.
Hmmmmm. Now I really want some plasticine to play with. Or Fimo! That would be amazing…
