Gnocchi with roasted garlic tomatoes & white beans

If you’ve had a long day and are in need of some hearty comfort food then try this super easy tray bake of loveliness.
Gnocchi is brilliant because it’s filling and really quick to cook but it can be a bit heavy if you serve it with a rich cheesy sauce. I find if you opt for a lighter tomato-based sauce you won’t need a nap after dinner. Hopefully…

Serves 2

1 packet of fresh Gnocchi (400g)
2 tsp red pesto
1 tin of cannellini beans
A packet of vine tomatoes (medium sized, about 10 tomatoes)
2 cloves garlic
30g pecorino or parmesan cheese, finely grated.

Preheat the oven to 200c
Drain and rinse the beans
Put the beans and tomatoes into a large roasting dish
Add two crushed cloves of garlic, a tablespoon of vegetable oil, salt and pepper
Roast for about 20mins (or until the tomatoes soften slightly)
While your beans and tomatoes are cooking put a pan of water on to boil and cook your Gnocchi according to packet instructions
When your roasted beans and tomatoes are ready, remove from the oven, add a tablespoon of red pesto and gently mix to mingle all those flavors

Top your Gnocchi with your roasted tomatoes and beans, sprinkle with all that lovely cheese.
