- Cooking and Prep: 40 m
- Serves: 6
Prepare the Gnocchi
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the gnocchi according to the package directions. Drain, reserving half a cup of the salted water.
Prepare the Sauce
In a large skillet, add the olive oil over medium heat.
Add in the diced onion and salt, and sauté for three to five minutes until soft and translucent.
Add the marinara sauce and sugar, and stir till heated through and mixed well.
Reduce the heat to low and add in the half and half. Stir until combined.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and grease an eight- by eight-inch pan or four ramekins with baking spray.
Add the cooked gnocchi plus reserved water to the skillet. Stir to mix well.
Pour the gnocchi into the baking dish/dishes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake for 10 minutes.
If the gnocchi is ready before your sauce is, simply drizzle them with olive oil to keep from sticking together.
To place the gnocchi in boiling water without burning your fingers, take a piece of Gefen Easy Baking Parchment Paper and place the gnocchi on top. Then lift both sides, bring them together, and slide the gnocchi into the water!
