Spicy Tomato Gnocchi

Gnocchi is one of those things that is a game changer when it comes to winter comfort foods. I love a big bowl of steaming gnocchi with a super tasty and bubbling sauce. It doesn’t need to be fancy, in fact when it comes to the best gnocchi dishes I think that the simpler the better. This spicy tomato and roasted red pepper sauce is the perfect balance of rich, sweet tomatoes and fiery chilli. Served with a bit of greenery it is perfect for simple midweek suppers or make a big batch and serve for family and friends for lunch.
