Gnocchi with Charred Red Peppers, Tomato & Mascarpone Sauce

Gnocchi is an enigma. Is it pasta? Is it a dumpling? Mysterious origins and etymologies abound. No matter the case, it's an underdog. Moreover, it's an underdog that was there first. Pasta's name precedes it, but gnocchi was the pioneer, the brave frontier explorer seeking carby goodness by whichever means it could. Potato, semolina, pumpkin. It doesn't matter. Gnocchi is a state of mind. A manner of being. And if you've got it, you've got it. 

Try this delicious rendition. It takes no time at all. It's fresh, vibrant and clean. And it is brought to life with Sublime No. 5.

  • 500g fresh gnocchi

  • 2 San Marzano tomatoes, quartered and deseeded
  • 1 small tub mascarpone
  • 1 small white onion, diced
