A super simple vegetarian recipe, which features pan fried gnocchi stirred though with rich pesto, sweet tomatoes and a kick of chilli. Ready in under 30 minutes, this one pot veggie delight won't leave you standing over the washing up bowl for long either. Scatter with fresh parsley and vegetarian cheese, then just simply serve up for everyone to help themselves!
♥ 500g fresh gnocchi
♥ 200g cherry tomatoes, halved
♥ 1 fresh chilli, finely chopped
♥ 1 tsp tomato puree
♥ 1 tbsp red pesto
♥ Fresh parsley to serve
♥ Parmesan cheese (vegetarian alternative)
Step one. Begin by adding a little oil to a large frying pan and frying off the gnocchi for 5-8 minutes on a medium heat.
Step two. Add in the tomato halves, puree and chillies and cook through for a further 10 minutes. Add a little boiling water if the gnocchi starts to stick.
Step three. Stir through the pesto and cook for 5 minutes until heated through and the tomatoes have softened. I used the Sacla Tomato & Olive Intenso Stir In - which is veggie friendly and has some chunky olives in too.
Season to taste and serve up with parsley and your favourite cheese!
