Gnocchi alla Sorrentina: this is the real name of this dish, today I want to present you a truly simple dish that I have always loved as a child. This dish makes me remember a lot all the Sunday I spent as a child with my grandmother the great cook of the Cuomo family in Napoli…..
Ingredients: (2 person) Gnocchi 200gr. Tomato cans 1 (400gr.) Bufalo Mozzarella cheese 200gr. 1 Garlic clove (Chopped) Parmiggiano Reggiano cheese 3 Table spoon Olive Oil 2 Table spoon 4-6 sweet basil leaves Salt,Black Pepper
Preparetion: (20Min.) Cut tomato, souted chopped garlic in olive oil, after flavoring the oil with the taste of garlic remove the garlic and add the tomato cans. Cook for about 3 minutes over low heat and add the chopped tomatoes and cook for another 3 minutes.at this point taste the sauce and check the acidity before adding the salt I usually add 3 maximum 4 pinches of salt. AND WE START TO BOIL THE GNOCCHI: (you can use ready-to-boil gnocchi even frozen but be sure they are potato gnocchi) add 3% of salt inside the water (it means that in 2 liters of water you will have to add 60 grams of salt)And wait for the water to start boiling, add the gnocchi and we wait until the gnocchi rise to the surface. (usually 4-5 minutes depending on the product you bought)After having drained every gnocchi we add them to the tomato sauce, them cook for a minute over a low heat and add half of the cubed mozzarella cheese, grated Parmiggiano cheese and cooke for another 1-2 minute. At the end add a teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil the rest of the mozzarella and the basil leas. SERVE EVERYTHING VERY QUICKLY!! Buon Appetito!!!
