Gnocchi with ball pepper and tomato sauce

Gnocchi with ball pepper tomato sauce

Gnocchi are usually classified as a kind of ‘pasta’ and also on the menus in most restaurants gnocchi are normally arranged next to spaghetti, tagliatelle and lasagna. But gnocchi are actually made from potatoes and are comparable with little potato dumplings. Since they are made from boiled potatoes, they only take a few minutes to cook and are therefore perfect for quick and easy dishes. Just like this one: 

You need:

  • 200g gnocchi
  • 1 red ball pepper
  • 2-3 tomatoes
  • 70ml cream
  • 1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
  • a pinch of sugar
  • vegetable oil
  • thyme
  • salt
  • pepper

Cook the gnocchi in enough water until done. Meanwhile, cut the ball pepper in bite-sized pieces and dice the tomatoes. Heat some vegetable oil in a pan and gently fry the ball pepper for five minutes, then add the tomatoes. Stir well and season with thyme, sugar, salt and pepper. After a couple of minutes, add the drained gnocchi and the cream. Simmer for 3-5 minutes, then stir in the balsamic vinegar and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve with a crisp salad.
