    Great recipe. We use the leftover sauce for pizza bases, often using the recipe alone just for that.

    Delicious.   Used frozen spinach and made my own lo-fat ricotta.  Mixed the cheese mixture by hand while tomato sauce was cooking.    Unfortunately, it only feeds about 2 hungry people!   Will be making again, and again.   The recipe makes a very generous amount of tomato sauce.

    Delicious!

    To save time and save having to wash up the thermomix a third time i just mixed the gnocchi mixture in a bowl with a fork while the sauce was cooking. 

    With the sauce I used pasata and fresh tomatoes instead of tinned. 

    Shame it only feeds two adults and one kid!

    Love this one, i used a little less cheese than called for, would probably go a little extra flour as i don't like my gnocchi to soft. Used silverbeat and fresh tomatoes from the garden. I cooked some of my gnocchi in a pot to see if i iprefered it cooked that way over steaming, but steaming came out fantastic, better than boiled as it held together better being steamed. Highly recomend this one!

    Loved the gnocchi, I used frozen spinach. Scattered the Gnocchi on the plates and topped it with roasted tomatoes, zucchini and pumpkin, plus a gew leaves of fresh basil and parsley. Absolutely yum...

    We made this last night and thoroughly enjoyed it.  To save time I steamed the spinach on the stove whilst making the tomato sauce.  I used 180g baby spinach leaves instead as I didn't have a bunch of English spinach.  To save more time I think you could make the gnocci mix first, put it into a bowl and roll it into shape whilst the sauce is cooking.  My very particular partner even called it a "restaurant quality dish" - success!
