  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound vacuum-packed gnocchi
  • 1 onion, chopped fine
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 (28-ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 2 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil



Step 1

1. Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat oven to 475 degrees. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add gnocchi and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes; transfer to plate.

2. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil and onion to now-empty skillet and cook until onion is softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Stir in tomatoes, water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper and cook until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

3. Add cream and browned gnocchi to pan. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until gnocchi are tender, 5 to 7 minutes; transfer to 2-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle with Parmesan and bake until cheese is well browned, about 8 minutes. Sprinkle with basil and serve.
