“From the Australian Magazine Super Food Ideas. The recipe uses Swiss cheese, but I used a mix of tasty, Parmesan and mozzarella. Even my husband who claims not to like gnocchi enjoyed this,”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 200c. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium heat; add onion and garlic and cook for 5 minutes or until soft.
  2. Add beef and cook, stirring to break up mince, for 5 minutes or until browned.
  3. Add pasta sauce and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until sauce has thickened.
  5. Meanwhile, bring a saucepan of salted water to the boil and cook gnocchi partially (about 3 minutes should do) then drain. Gnocchi will finish cooking in the oven!
  6. Spoon meat sauce into a baking dish (6cm deep, 24X30cm base).
  7. Top with gnocchi, sprinkle with cheese, then bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted and browning and sauce bubbling at edges.
