Non {potato} Gnocchi



For the tomato sauce ... I used Amy's recipe but modified it to suit this meal ... by the way, you should try that Fresh Roasted Tomato and Basil w/Pasta recipe ! It's delish too !! Big hit here !

Tomato Sauce:
Preheat your oven to 425F/220C

2 pints grape tomatoes - I just chopped up some romas !
4 cloves garlic, grated
A few drizzles of extra-virgin olive oil
Freshly ground black pepper and salt

Put your tomatoes in a bowl, add garlic, and drizzle with olive oil. Put onto baking sheet. Grind salt and pepper on top. Roast 8 - 10 minutes. When finished, put them in a big bowl and smush 'em up.

Gnocchi
Baby Spinach ... 3 big handfuls, chopped
Ricotta, 200g... (I used the smooth kind because it didn't have preservatives)
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Make teaspooon size balls. Refrigerate til ready to cook ... at least 30 minutes. Boil water in large pot. Cook gnocchi in batches, til they rise to the top of the water. Shouldn't take more than a minute or two. Drain well.

Serve by putting tomato sauce on bottom of bowl, carefully add gnocchi and top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

You should call this Inside-out Lasagna! I might have to give this a whirl.
