A delicious vegetarian-friendly Italian dish. Fresh gnocchi is topped with a sauce made with cherry tomatoes, basil and olives. Enjoy with garlic bread, if desired.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
This was an easy recipe. Light and delicious. I didn't add the chile (kids don't like it). Would make this again and again. - 16 Jun 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Quite good! Tastes like something you would get at a nice Italian restaurant. I was a little concerned that it might become too bitter (had this problem before with cherry tomatoes) so I added a bit of salt and sugar while cooking them. May not have been necessary, but it came out nice anyway. Also added a little more garlic and red chili pepper for my taste. The olives add a nice touch, thanks for this one. - 01 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe made a really nice sauce. The olives were a nice touch so be sure to use them. I sprinkled in some sugar as well and also added a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar. The crushed tomatoes I used were fire roasted and I found that added something special to the sauce as well. I upped the garlic to three cloves. It's four stars because I thought the sauce was a bit too chunky and needed more liquid. - 07 Sep 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
