Crispy Basil Gnocchi with Meatballs



Prepare the Meatballs

1. In a large pot over medium heat, combine all sauce ingredients and mix. Mash the jelled cranberry sauce into smaller chunks. Bring to a low boil.
2. In a large bowl, combine all meat ingredients and mix until combined. Don’t over-mix. One by one, roll olive-sized balls and place them into the pot of sauce. Gently stir the meatballs to make space for more.
3. Lower flame to low and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring gently every 10 minutes.

Prepare the Crispy Basil Gnocchi

1. Pop your gnocchi in salted boiling water for three minutes until they’re just about cooked through and the water is completely cloudy. As soon as the first piece of gnocchi floats to the top, drain in a colander.
2. Put oil in a pan over medium heat and add your gnocchi. Fry until crispy, shaking frequently. Season with salt, pepper, and basil. When lightly golden, remove from flame.

To Serve

1. Serve meatballs over crispy gnocchi. Garnish with basil leaves, if desired.
