My Big Brother’s Gnocchi

My big brother Matthew loves to cook gnocchi not only because it is delicious, but he can buy a prepared packet cheaply and it only takes 3 minutes to cook!

Since Matt introduced us to gnocchi I found out you can serve it with a wide variety of sauces and have been trying them out at home for a speedy supper. Matt cooked his gnocchi with a ragu sauce roughly the same as my recipe below.

Here’s the recipe:

Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 500g pack gnocchi (2 packs if you are extra hungry)
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 2 tsp mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 500g steak mince
  • 2 tsp tomato puree
  • 1 tub passata (500g)
  • (optional – 1 glass red wine)

Method:

  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan, add all ingredients except the passata and cook for roughly 3-5 mins or until soft.
  2. Add steak mince and fry until browned.
  3. Add passata (wine if using) to frying pan, simmer for 15-20 mins.
  4. Serve on gnocchi with ground pepper.
