About this recipe

This recipe is the perfect recipe to make when you don’t have time or desire to cook. It really is as easy as putting all the ingredients in a baking dish, and that’s it; in 20 minutes, you will have lunch or dinner ready. The truth is, I am calling it a “recipe,” but really, there’s no science or method to it 😉, you just put everything together.

The traditional way to make gnocchi is in boiling water, but you need to wait for the water to boil, watch them while they are cooking to avoid sticking, and take them out at the right time to prevent overcooking and falling apart. Baking gnocchis is faster since you spread them on a baking pan and let them bake without having to be so vigilant.

Equipment

  • 1 Baking dish 8 in x 12 in

Ingredients
  

  • 16 oz gnocchi 1 package
  • 16 oz cherry tomatoes
  • 6 oz feta cheese cubed, without liquid, I use vegan
  • 3 large garlic cloves
  • 6 fresh basil leaves
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher salt

Instructions
 

  • In a baking dish, place the gnocchi, cherry tomatoes, peeled garlic, olive oil, and salt. Mix well and arrange the garlic cloves so that they are at the bottom of the dish.
  • Add the feta cheese and the basil leaves.
  • Bake in the oven for 20 minutes at a temperature of 180°C (350°F). They will be ready when you see the cherry tomatoes starting to burst, the cheese is almost melted, and the gnocchi are tender.
  • Remove from the oven and carefully crush a few tomatoes and the garlic. Mix everything, being careful not to mash the gnocchi.

Notes

💡 Tips
Olive oil: If you don’t have olive oil, use any vegetable oil. It will change the taste slightly, but it still works.
Garlic: Use garlic powder if you don’t have fresh garlic.
Gnocchi: I use store-bought, traditional potato gnocchi.
Basil: If you don’t have basil, you can use fresh or dried oregano or add a tablespoon of pesto.
Serve with a salad with balsamic vinegar dressing.
Leftovers: If you have leftovers, store them in a container in the fridge. To reheat, you can use the microwave or a non-stick skillet on the stove.
