  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large  onion, chopped
  • 1 large red pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes (Passata is better)
  • 750g pack vegan gnocchi
  • Optional: 120g vegan chick’n*
  • 100g cherry tomatoes, halved
  • Grated cheddar alternative
  • a handful of basil leaves, torn half a
  • 125g ball vegan mozzarella, torn into chunks

( *Recommendation: Taste & Glory Roast Tenderstrips)

Instructions:
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large frying pan, add onions and stir for a minute, add peppers and cook for further 3 minutes. Add the optional vegan chick’n and fry for a few more minutes, add the chopped tomatoes/passata and the garlic. Tip the gnocchi and stir.
Now it’s time to turn the oven on.
Pro tip: If you prefer a milder garlic flavour, add it after the onions but before the olives and fry until it is light brown.
Bring the contents to boil over medium heat, bringing it to a simmer. Add the basil and two-thirds of the mozzarella chunks, stir and transfer immediately to an ovenproof dish and cover it with uniformly distributed cherry tomato halves and the vegan chicken ( if using). Add the remaining mozzarella and grated cheddar. Bake until the cheese is bubbling and golden.  
Serve with a green salad. (Goes well with garlic bread)
