Gnocchi Bake With Pancetta and Red Onion

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

ingredients

directions

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

"I am a primary school teacher living in Bristol, England. At the moment I teach Kindergarten, known here as Reception. I really love my job but it doesn't leave much time for hobbies! I enjoy cooking for friends and aim to try new recipes as often as possible! My signature dish has to be White Chocolate Blondies, as it is my most requested sweet treat, and I definitely have a sweet tooth! Update- 5-5-09: Somebody was very thoughtful and gave me the gift of a premium membership. I can honestly say it made me feel so good! If you're out there, THANK YOU so much! I can't quite believe the generosity... <img src="http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a254/Sharon123/Copyoftag300-banner.jpg" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Recipezaar%20Album/iplaytagin.jpg"> <img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/holidaybadge.gif" border="0" alt="Photobucket"X> <img src="http://i270.photobucket.com/albums/jj81/HokiesLady65/Banners/holidayprmr2.jpg"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"> <img src="http://img29.imageshack.us/img29/7505/mybanner4a394ee84d5f0.jpg" > <img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v726/annacia/Permanent%20Banners/cc-banner-7-09.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Participation.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg">"

    Judging by the other reviews, I doubled this. I only had one red onion, and like everyone else couldn't find sun-dried tomato paste, but did find spread, so I used that. I thought it was good; my family seemed to like it. However, I didn't give it the 5th star because we are all sick and couldn't enjoy it to it's fullest! I'll try again when we can breathe and taste!

    Delish! I had never had gnocchi before so this was a real treat. I halved the recipe for 2 servings and couldn't find sun-dried tomato paste, so did as others and used regular tomato paste and added some sun-dried tomatoes. Loved the pancetta in this! Thanks Shuzbud for a brand new taste sensation. Made for ZWT7 by a fellow Emerald City Shaker.

    Oh wow this was amazing! I used thin slices of bacon instead of pancetta. And for the sun-dried tomatoe paste I just used a stick blender to make a paste and added a little oil. I used the "potato Gnocchi" recipe by MermaidMagic. TY Shuzbud
