    Love this recipe, the gnocchi is amazing, but I also agree with other comments would be good to do something with the basic tomato sauce to add a little more flavour or sweetness.

    One word - delicious! Smile Great quick recipe. I made it for a lunch with friends. Prepped the gnocchi earlier in the day. I’ve never eaten ricotta gnocchi but now I think I have a favourite dish! I used passata instead of tin tomatoes and added basil and roasted capsicum as another user suggested.

    Submitted by mnayler54 on 24. March 2018 - 20:50.

    This is quite possibly my favourite Thermomix recipe. Super yummy and so easy! I love to blitz extra veggies into the sauce, like zucchini, carrot and mushrooms to make it even healtheir.

    I've also frozen this in single portions for my "can't be bothered" nights and it heats up in the microwave just as fresh and delicious as the day I made it.

    Submitted by ScottTas on 24. August 2017 - 07:49.

    Still love using this recipe. Note to me for next time:
    Add red wine, cumin and chilli flakes towards end of garlic / onion sautè.
    Add salt and cracked pepper with tomatoes, along with 1.5T tomato paste and 1/2t dried oregano plus fresh basil. Perhaps try spinach / capsicum / mushroom next time also.
    Grated parmesan, cracked pepper and shredded basil on top when serving.
    Makes meal for 2 with enough sauce left for another pasta meal for 2.

    Submitted by RosalieN on 20. August 2017 - 12:33.

    FANTASTIC recipe - I've made this recipe numerous times, and is always and huge hit with my guests.
    And again, served it at dinner last night, and got massive raves!
    I always make my own ricotta, and often freeze (uncooked) gnocchi. I cook straight from frozen, and it's a fantastic emergency meal. (I also freeze up the sauce in individual portions as well).

    I think it's a great recipe for anyone just starting out with their Thermomix as well, because it always produces such great results.

    Thanks for such a great recipe, which I always pass on.

    This was really nice. I added some chopped mushrooms and broccoli to the sauce and would add some cracked pepper next time for some additional seasoning. I baked some chicken fillets in the oven and had the ricotta gnocci and tomato sauce as a side. Will def make again tmrc_emoticons.)

    Made this tonight in my TM5 and made a double batch. Great recipe thanks 🙌🏻.
    I used a bottle of Tomato Passatta as I had no tin tomatoes and it worked a treat . I added some cream at the end to make it creamy and my young adult children enjoyed it all. I used fresh basil , chives and cracked pepper .

    Straight forward & easy to do (which is not something I usually associate with gnocchi!) - I added veg stock paste & basil to the sauce, then sprinkled with fresh basil to serve. Not mind-blowing, but simple, lovely and tasty for a weeknight dinner.

    Submitted by Maida on 20. October 2016 - 19:44.

    Gnocchi worked perfectly although I did add 300g ricotta. I made a sauce with bacon, zuchinni , mushroom and a few asparagus. My herbs were basil, parsley and oregano. Absolutely delicious and so much easier than many other recipes for gnocchi. Thank you  Love

  • Absolutely delicious gnocchi!

    Submitted by ThermoloverTM5 on 28. March 2016 - 08:25.

    Absolutely delicious gnocchi! I have never made any type of gnocchi before and was worried about making this for our BBQ but they turned out beautifully! So easy to make, not gluggy, full of flavour. Definitely a small serving but I don't think anymore would fit in the varoma to steam. Thank you for a wonderful recipe  tmrc_emoticons.)

    This is tasty but incredibly rich. Making it again, I think I'd add some spinach like others have suggested and perhaps add some other veggies to the sauce to bulk it out a bit more.

    Great recipe!

    i added spinach to the gnocchi and olives, sun dried tomato and some other veg to the sauce, also let the sauce cook longer to thicken.

    i agree with a previous comment that it's only enough for 4 as a main and we are not big eaters.

    yummy

  • So easy to make and steaming

    Submitted by meganzig on 2. January 2015 - 20:17.

    So easy to make and steaming the gnocchi instead of boiling in water meant they weren't water logged.

    I only used half the tomatoes in the recipe and there was still plenty of sauce. Great and quick meal idea.

    This recipe is fantastic! My gnocchi were light and fluffy and the sauce was nice and simple. I did add some sugar though as being tinned tomatoes I knew there would be a slight bitterness. 1 teaspoon did the job. I recommend this recipe to everyone!

    It does depend on the tomatoes - some are sweeter than others. I know some Italian cooks that always add a little brown sugar to their tomato sauces!

    The gnocchi was delicious, very light & tasty. Next time I make it I might add something to sweeten the tomato sauce a little, felt it could've done with a little more sweetness. Overall - delicious!
