Thanks for sharing this recipe, Marie! This sauce was easy to make, but tasted wonderful! I just couldn't justify using canned sauce on my homemade gnocci (Potato Gnocchi Done Right) and we were really pleased with the result. I did add a tablespoon of sugar to reduce the acidity of the tomatoes. Thanks again! :)

What a very simple dish, quickly and easily prepared for a delectable and very satisfying dinner dish. I used store-bought gnocchi but will use my home-made next time, this dish deserves it! An ample amount of sauce, and I also added a pinch of sugar. Very good recipe, thanks for sharing, made for I Recommend tag game

Very easy and rich, I found it made a wee bit too much sauce for the amount of gnocchi, but no dramas because I just put it in a jar and froze it for an easy meal when I'm feeling lazy. Thanks for a lovely dinner.
