- 1 tablespoon of olive oil
- 120 g chorizo, cut into cubes
- 2 x 400g chopped tomatoes
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 1 teaspoon caster sugar
- 600gm fresh gnocchi
- 125gm mozzarella cheese ball, cut into pieces
- A small bunch of shredded basil
- Green salad to serve
Heat the oil in a medium frying pan over medium heat. Fry onion and garlic for 8-10 minutes, until soft. Add chorizo and fry for another 5 minutes. Tip on tomato, sugar and seasoning. Leave the mixture on low heat, add the gnocchi and cook for 8 minutes, stirring constantly, until soft. Heat the grill over high heat.
Stir half of the mozzarella cheese and most of the basil through the gnocchi. Divide the mixture over six baking dishes, or place them on a baking dish. Top with the remaining amount of mozzarella, then grill it for 3 minutes, or until the cheese melts and becomes golden. Season it, and spread it over the remaining basil, and serve with a green salad.
