Potato Gnocchi

in the Sorrentina Style



500 g Rummo Potato Gnocchi
1 garlic clove
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
200 g whole cherry tomatoes
500 g tomato puree
Salt, a pinch
250 g “fior di latte” or mozzarella cheese
Grated Parmesan, to taste
Fresh basil leaves, to taste


In a sauté pan, gently brown a clove of garlic in extra virgin olive oil. Add 500 g of tomato puree, salt, and cook gently over low heat with the lid on, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. For extra flavor and texture, you can add 200 g of whole cherry tomatoes. In the meantime, drain 250 g of “fior di latte” or mozzarella cheese so that it doesn’t release excessive milk into the final dish. Dice or slice the cheese. In abundant salted water, boil the Rummo Gnocchi until they float to the surface. Drain. Mix them with the tomato sauce, removing the garlic and adding the “fior di latte” or mozzarella cheese and fresh basil leaves. Sauté until the mozzarella is stringy. Serve by adding more fresh basil leaves, a sprinkling of grated Parmesan and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
