I just wanted to share with all of you mine and my families favourite meal, well the kids especially as they love making meatballs. Also with gnocchi now available in the budget supermarkets, it makes for a very cheap meal. Plus itss very easy to make and can be made in advance and heated up in the oven.
1x packet of gnocchi
1x packet of minced beef/pre made meat balls
1x tin of chopped tomatoes
1x chopped onion
mixed Italian herbs
salt & pepper
- Just sauté the onions, add the meat balls, then once cooked add the tinned tomatoes, herbs and mushrooms.
- Mean while boil a saucepan of salted water, then cook the gnocchi as directed on the packet.
- Add the cooked gnocchi to the meatballs, mix altogether, chop up the mozzarella into small cubes and sprinkle over the top and put in the oven for 20 minutes.
Voila…. a very yummy and easy dinner, served with mixed green leaves. Please give it a go and let me know what you think.
