Gnocchi in Tomato Sauce

Yummmm….gnocchi! Sunday night after getting home from a fun weekend in the mountains, I was glad to have some gnocchi and tomatoes already in the house that I could whip up into a fast and yummy dinner.

I started off by finely dicing and caramelizing an onion (yes, all my dishes really do start with onions–maybe that’s why I can’t bake?). Once the onion was brown, I added some minced garlic, basil, and red pepper flakes. Next went in a lot of diced tomatoes and a little red wine.

While the sauce was simmering away, I started cooking all the gnocchi. After they floated to the top of the water, I spooned the gnocchi into the sauce to cook for a few minutes. It was super yummy, and made for a great lunch the next day too!
