Baked gnocchi alla sorrentina – Quick Meal

I saw this recipe a few months ago and have been waiting to try it. Today was the perfect day and mom didn’t have to cook 2 weeks in a row. Recipe below. 


2 lb fresh or store-bought gnocchi

2 cups fresh or bottled tomato sauce

7 oz mozzarella cheese

parmigiano reggiano cheese


1. Set about ½ gal. (2 lt.) of water in a pasta pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling add a generous pinch of salt and give it a stir. Carefully without burning, a bit at a time throw gnocchi in the pot.

2. Gnocchi cook rapidly, just a few minutes, so once you see them floating move them to a baking dish.

3. In the baking dish toss all the gnocchi with tomato sauce and cover with mozzarella and a sprinkle of parmigiano reggiano cheese. Bake at 425 for about 10 minutes until the cheeses are nicely melted.


Super easy and super quick to make. I got a little sauce happy and for everyone who knows me will be shocked by that. (Don’t worry I still scraped it all off once it was on my plate.) It was very good, but it is very filling. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe.
