How to prepare Gnocchi alla Sorrentina

In a pan pour a drizzle of olive oil, a clove of peeled whole garlic and the tomato puree, salt to taste.
Flavor with the basil leaves, then cover with a lid and cook over medium-low heat for about 30 minutes.

Once the tomato sauce is ready, remove the garlic from and pour almost all the sauce into a very large bowl.
Boil the gnocchi by pouring them into the pan in at least 2-3 batches; they will have to cook for a few minutes.

Drain the gnocchi with the help of a skimmer as soon as they come to the surface and dip them gradually into the bowl with the tomato sauce.

Gently mix with a spoon and season on the top with a layer of diced mozzarella and grated Parmesan cheese. 

After you put the cheese, bake the gnocchi in a static oven preheated to 475°F in broil mode for 5 minutes.

Serve them hot and enjoy this tasty and simple Italian recipe!
