Potato gnocchi

I tried to do some potato gnocchi from scratch, with pizzaiola sauce, after a wonderful recipe – http://www.gianni.tv/potato-gnocchi-with-three-sauces/, but I didn’t have time today to make them, so I just bought some from Longo’s Supermarket. As a sauce, I’ve made an original recipe called Doru’s’ pasta sauce.

Ingredients for the sauce:

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 stalk of leek, cut thin slices
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 5 plum tomatoes cut julienne (no skin)
  • 2 mushrooms, thin sliced
  • 2 tbsp of chicken/vegetable soup
  • 1 tbsp bacon bits
  • 2 tsp chili garlic sauce
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • pinch od oregano


In a frying pan heat the olive oil at medium-high temperature, add leek and cook until soft. Add tomatoes, mushrooms, bacon bits, chicken/vegetable soup and chili garlic sauce and simmer until thick in consistency. When ready, add gnocchi and spices and simmer for another 2-3 minutes or until gnocchi will absorb the remaining liquid. Serve with grated Pecorino cheese. Enjoy!!!
