Units Scale

Simple Delicious Tomato Sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • quarter of an onion, minced
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced or thinly sliced
  • 12 ounces DeLallo Passata Tomato Purée
  • 1/2 cup broth or water
  • torn basil
  • 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • one 16-ounce package DeLallo Potato Gnocchi (I used shelf-stable gnocchi but frozen would also work)
  • a handful of baby spinach
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese slices
  • Parmesan cheese


  1. Make the sauce: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Heat the olive oil over medium low heat. Add the onion and garlic; sauté until translucent and fragrant. Add passata and water or broth; bring to a low simmer. Add torn basil, mascarpone, and salt. YUM.
  2. Bake it up: Add gnocchi and spinach. Stir to coat evenly with sauce. Top with mozzarella slices and a sprinkle of Parmesan. Bake for 15-20 minutes, until gooey and light golden brown on top. Serve with more basil. THE END. That’s it. You’re in heaven.
