I love gnocchi, and found this on another website. Chef's Tip: Add Cream to sauce to add richness and/or add vegetables of choice to sauce and/or add sautéed chicken strips to sauce.

this is a fantastic recipe, I made this with my Kittencal's Easy Gnocchi and plan on making it again next time with fresh chopped ripe Roma tomatoes, I increased the chili flakes way up, I didn't have fresh basil handy when I made this so I used 1-1/2 teaspoons dried and sauteed with the garlic mixture, thanks for sharing Cooks!

Delicious! Although I had far too much sauce for my pasta, what a shame! Guess I'll freeze it and save for another day :D
