This one pot Tuscan inspired creamy gnocchi recipe is simple to whip up in under 25 minutes. The browned pork mince, sundried tomatoes, courgette and creme fraiche make up the delicious gnocchi sauce. Soo tasty!

Ingredients

  • 500 g (5% fat) pork mince (£3.00)
  • 3 garlic cloves (£0.69/3)= (£0.23)
  • 100 g sun-dried tomatoes, chopped into quarters (£1.09)
  • 1 courgette, grated (£0.80/2)=(£0.40)
  • 2 packs of 500g gnocchi (£0.65x2)=(£1.30)
  • Juice of half a lemon (£0.30)
  • 100 ml creme fraiche (£1.07)
  • Bunch of fresh basil, finely chopped (£0.50)

Cupboard Essentials

  • 1 litre of chicken stock
  • Black pepper
  • Salt

Method

  • Start by adding 1 tbsp of sun-dried tomato infused oil from the jar to a large frying pan on a medium/high heat. Add the pork mince to the frying pan and break it up slightly using your spatula. Leave the mince to brown for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, reduce the heat slightly and add the garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and grated courgette. Season with a pinch of salt and gently fry for around two minutes before adding the chicken stock and gnocchi.
  • Reduce to a low simmer for around 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • After this period, the starch from the gnocchi should have thickened the sauce slightly and the gnocchi should be ready to eat. At this point, turn off the heat and add the lemon juice and creme fraiche. Stir until combined.
  • To serve, season with lots of black pepper, a pinch of salt and chopped fresh basil.
