Recipe by Shuzbud

This is easy to make and yet tastes fabulous! As always, good quality mascarpone will yield a much richer flavour.

So good. Made #54858. Next time, oh yes there will be a next time, I will dice the onions and tomatoes finer. We made a 1/2 batch, thankfully because I think the 2 of us would of ate it all.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet and add the pancetta. Cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently, for 1 minute.
  3. Add the red onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for a further 5 minutes, or until the pancetta is cooked and the onion softened.
  4. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, sun-dried tomato paste, and mascarpone cheese. Simmer over a low heat for 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, cook the gnocchi for 1-2 minutes, until they rise to the surface. Do not overcook.
  6. Drain the gnocchi thoroughly and place in a large ovenproof dish (I use a 10x6).
  7. Add the chopped basil to the pancetta sauce mixture and stir. Pour the sauce over the gnocchi and toss gently to coat it.
  8. Combine the grated cheese with the breadcrumbs and scatter over the gnocchi.
  9. Cook in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until golden and bubbling.
  10. Serve hot and enjoy!
