Warm and Cheesy.

Share it Please
If nothing else, this recipe is proof that I am NOT the food police - dietitian or not...

Individual Italian Poutine - serves 2
Spicy Tomato Sauce
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 14 oz can of crushed tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (adjust as suits your taste...we like it spicy!)
1 tsp mixed Italian herbs (oregano, basil, tarragon etc)
salt and pepper, to taste
1 package gnocchi
1/2 cup fresh mozzarella cheese, cubed
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
Start by mixing up the spicy tomato sauce!  Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat and saute the onion and garlic until it starts to smell delicious and look sort of wimpy (5 mins).  Add the rest of the ingredients and stir.  Reduce the heat to medium-low and let simmer for 5-10 minutes to let the deliciousness evenly distribute.
While the sauce is simmering, cook the gnocchi according to the package directions. When everything is ready to go evenly divide the gnocchi, sauce and cheese into 2 small oven-safe baking dishes and toss everything together.  Top with the grated Parmesan.  Switch on the broiler and stick the baking dishes in the oven for about 5 minutes.  Remove from the oven, let the dishes cool for as long as you can stand it, then devour! Aaaamazing!
