This brings new meaning to "Easy Weeknight Dinner." On the table in under 10 minutes. A nice salad with balsamic would be great on the side.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook gnocchi according to box directions.
  2. In a saucepan, heat diced tomatoes and garlic.
  3. Add basil and heat until wilted.
  4. You can either spoon this over the gnocchi, or mix the two together in the pan, as I prefer to do.
  5. Sprinkle with parmesan.
  6. Note: Can also add mushrooms, diced chicken, anything else you like. It's so quick to make, it'll be easy to experiment with it next time you make it! :-).

Too boring for my taste. Might make a good starter, maybe toss in some Italian sausage, green peppers, parmesan cheese, etc.

I did not have canned tomatoes on hand so I used 2 cups diced fresh tomatoes, 1/4 c red onion and 2 cloves garlic. Sauted the onions and garlic in olive oil added the tomatoes and basil, simmered for 5 minutes. GREAT!!!
