and pulse a few times until smooth.

Put 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil into a medium pan and, when it's hot, add the garlic. Cook the garlic until golden then remove it, add the pureed tomatoes and season with salt.

Cook on medium heat for about 15 minutes, until it's thickened. Add a few leaves of fresh basil and remove from heat.

In the meanttime, bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. When the water is boiling, add the gnocchi.

Using a slotted spoon, scoop out the gnocchi into a bowl as you see them rise to the surface of the pan. This is an indication that the gnocchi are cooked. (It only takes 2 minutes)

Add the tomato sauce, 1/2 of the grated Parmesan cheese

 

and mix gently with a spoon.

Pour the gnocchi into individual oven dishes and top with the mozzarella cubes and the remaining grated cheese.
