Homemade Gnocchi with Tomato Sauce

Homemade Gnocchi with Tomato Sauce

We like gnocchi so much and, since we can cook them correctly using the recipe here, I suggest trying them with an exemplary Marinara Sauce, as well. This is how my girls like gnocchi most often, maybe with a bit of grated parmesan on top.

If you have Marinara tomato sauce on hand (I usually have 30-40 jars per season) and some supplies of gnocchi in the freezer, you can always improvise a quick meal without much effort. And even if you don't have these, the process is not complicated. Take the steps one by one and enjoy a delicious Italian-style meal right at your home.

Step by step


First of all, I recommend starting with the Marinara tomato sauce. For maximum tastiness, bring the sauce to the boil, then keep it warm until gnocchi are ready. 


Shape the gnocchi following this recipe on the website - Homemade gnocchi.

I was telling you they can be stored in the freezer, in which case they don't need thawing in advance.


Bring to a boil water and salt in a large pot.

When it comes to the boil, add the gnocchi and simmer until they start to rise at the surface.


With a slotted spoon, remove the cooked gnocchi from the pot and place them in the saucepan with the hot tomato sauce.


Mix carefully, it's even better if you actually shake the pot. Gnocchi are very tender when hot and we don't want to mash them.


Serve immediately with a little grated parmesan on top, if you like.
