Gnocchi with rustic tomato sauce

We had a great time with Jon’s parents visiting us this past weekend! Several of the dinners were dishes I have previously posted, but one of their requests was gnocchi.

Since we were adventuring around the city, I used packaged gnocchi rather than making it myself. I did however make use of ingredients from the farmers market for the sauce!

I started it off with an onion sautéed in olive oil, and then added lots of slivered garlic. Next, I added lots of fresh chopped tomatoes which were super ripe and juicy. After letting the tomatoes cook down a little bit, I added a small amount of white wine to finish the sauce. Each dish was topped with lots of fresh basil leaves, and for me and Jon, crushed red pepper to add a little spice. It was a nice dinner to share with family, especially when it was followed by some fun games. We were very glad they were able to visit!
