Ingredients

2 eggs

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Gnocchi:

1 teaspoon pepper

8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into small chunks

1 (8 ounce) container ricotta cheese

1 (15.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes

1 tablespoon minced garlic

3 tablespoons olive oil

Sauce:

Salt and pepper to taste

1 dash crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

6 basil leaves, finely shredded

1 cup all-purpose flour, or as needed

Steps

Step 1

Stir together the ricotta cheese, eggs, Parmesan Cheese, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a large bowl until evenly combined. Mix in 1 cup of flour. Add additional flour if needed to form a soft dough.

Step 2

Divide the dough into 3 or 4 pieces, and roll into 1/2-inch-thick ropes on a floured surface. Cut each rope into 1-inch pieces, and place on a lightly floured baking sheet. Place in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Step 3

Heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in garlic, and cook until softened and fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in diced tomatoes and red pepper flakes; bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, and cook for 10 minutes. Stir in shredded basil and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 4

While sauce is simmering, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Boil the gnocchi until they float to the surface, 1 to 2 minutes, then drain.

Step 5

To assemble the dish, stir the cubed mozzarella cheese into the sauce and allow the heat of the sauce to soften, but not melt the cheese. Place gnocchi into a serving bowl, and spoon sauce overtop.
