Prepare the tomatoes. Cut the stem out of the big vine tomatoes and slice into chunks. Mix together with the cherry tomatoes.

Step 2.

Get a frying pan on a medium heat.

Step 3.

Slice your garlic and add into the pan along with a glug of olive oil and the chilli flakes. Fry on a medium heat.

Step 4.

Add in the tomatoes, cook until they begin to break up and bubble down into a fresh tomato sauce. Add in the basil.

Step 5.

Add the gnocchi to a bowl and cover with boiling water. Leave for 5 minutes until the gnocchi begins to float to the surface.

Step 6.

Drain the gnocchi and add into the tomato sauce with 5 tbsp of the gnocchi water. Stir together and bubble down in the pan for a couple of minutes until you have a nice thick gnocchi sauce. Season with salt and pepper.

Step 7.

Pour your gnocchi into a baking dish. Tear up the mozzarella and place on top of the gnocchi.

Step 8.

Place under the grill for 7-8 minutes until the cheese is golden and bubbling. Remove, serve up and enjoy!

Using fresh tomatoes in your sauce makes the dish so much more flavoursome and delicious.
