  • Chop the onion, carrot and celery.

  • Cook until tender, about 10 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 425 fahrenheit (210 celsius).
  • Add the tomatoes,including the juice,to the pan along with salt and pepper.
  • Simmer for about 30 minutes until thickened.
  • Don't forget to stir occasionally.
  • Put in the blender and puree.
  • Pour it back into the pan, remove from the heat and stir in cream and nutmeg.
  • Season to taste.
  • Place the gnocchi in a large baking dish and cover with the sauce. (Precook the gnocchi to package directions if you are using storebought gnocchi.)
  • Bake in preheated oven until very hot and starting to brown on top.
  • About 7-10 minutes.
  • Serve immediatly, sprinkled with parsley.
  • The sauce can be made a day ahead up until adding the cream.
  • Only add the cream and bake just before serving.
  • This makes a great and very tasty vegetarian dish or side dish.
  • I like to make it with spinach gnocchi.
  • Serve with bread to mop up the delicious sauce.
