  • Sauté the garlic with a little of the vegetable broth for about 1 minute.
  • Add the remaining sauce ingredients and let cook for on medium for 15 minutes.


  • Add the gnocchi ingredients to mixing bowl and mix until just incorporated. Don't overmix.
  • Press mixture into a ball and cut in half.
  • Roll each half into a long rope about a 1/2 inch in diameter.
  • Cut into 1 inch chunks with a sharp knife.
  • Add half of the gnocchi to a pan of boiling water and let cook until they float. Once they float, let cook for 30 more seconds and then remove with a slotted spoon adding them directly to the sauce.
  • Finish cooking the remaining gnocchi and add them to the sauce.
  • Let gnocchi cook for a couple minutes in the sauce so that the sauce will thicken slightly.

    I tried this tonight. I have never made gnocchi before so I was skeptical. I had to use a bit more flour to make it pliable enough to roll out and less sticky. I also sprinkled a tiny bit of corn starch in the final sauce to thicken it up a bit. Very tasty. I was pleasantly surprised. Thanks.
