Perfect for a lazy Wednesday night, pile on this tomatoey goodness and have the best gnocchi you could ask for.



  • Four servings of store-bought gnocchi
  • 1 large onion (diced)
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large eggplant, diced
  • 1/2 red capsicum, diced,
  • 1 large zucchini, diced
  • 2 tins (440g) organic tomatoes
  • 1 heaped tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • cracked black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 bunch fresh basil
  • 1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
  • Fresh parmesan-style cheeseΒ 


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil.
  2. In a frying pan, saute the onion in a little olive oil over medium heat until translucent.
  3. Add the garlic and saute one minute, until fragrant.
  4. Add the eggplant, capsicum and zucchini and turn up the heat. Saute until the veg is starting to get brown.
  5. Add the tomatoes, tomato paste, sugar, salt, pepper, balsamic, and basil leaves (I leave them whole)
  6. Bring to a boil and then turn the heat down to simmer and thicken about 20 minutes. Throw in half the fresh parsley.
  7. Serve over the top of the gnocchi with the cheese and the rest of the parsley sprinkled over.


By all means make your own gnocchi (I have a super-easy recipe here), but good quality store-bought is legit.
