  • 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 thinly sliced garlic cloves
  • 16 oz (1 lb) halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1 handful chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon white sugar
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 lb (450g) potato gnocchi
  • 12 oz (340g) diced mozzarella (dried on paper towels first)
  • 3 oz (85g) chopped prosciutto (or wafer-thin sliced ham)
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan, to serve (optional)
  • Fresh herb sprigs, for garnish (optional)


  1. Put 2 tablespoons of oil in a pan and heat it up.
  2. Sauté the garlic in there until golden brown.
  3. Now add the cherry tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes.
  4. Add the basil, sugar and some salt and pepper.
  5. Bring the mixture to a boil then turn the heat right down and keep it cooking as slowly as possible.

  7. Now add the gnocchi and stir with a wooden spoon to coat in the oil/butter mixture.
  8. Grind in some salt and pepper and cook for 5 minutes without stirring.
  9. Now flip the gnocchi over so the other side can brown.
  10. This will take another 4 to 5 minutes.
  11. Stir if necessary, then take the gnocchi off the heat.
  12. Remove the tomatoes form the heat and add the mozzarella.
  13. Add the mozzarella mixture and prosciutto to the gnocchi and stir.
