  • 4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 x 250g packs mixed baby tomatoes
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely sliced
  • ½ x 20g pack sage, leaves picked and larger leaves torn
  • 500g Essential Gnocchi
  • 40g Parmigiano Reggiano DOP, pared with a veg peeler


  1. Heat a large frying pan over a mediumhigh heat and add the oil. Once hot, add the tomatoes and garlic. Season, then cover with a lid and reduce the heat to medium.

  2. Cook for 5 minutes, until the tomatoes are softening and the garlic is fragrant, then add the sage and cook for 2-4 minutes more, uncovered, until the tomatoes break down and form a sauce.

  3. Meanwhile, boil the gnocchi according to pack instructions, then lift from the pan with a slotted spoon and add to the tomatoes. They will bring some cooking water with them.

  4. Toss everything together for a couple of minutes in the pan over a low heat, then scatter with the parmesan and serve with freshly ground black pepper.

Cook’s tip

This also makes a delicious sauce for pasta – just sub in 350g cooked pasta instead of the gnocchi.
