Gnocchi alla Sorrentina is a classic and very tasty Italian dish made with soft and light potato gnocchi baked in a simple and delicious tomato sauce with mozzarella cheese, grated Parmisan and fresh basil.
The original recipe is from Sorrento, in southern Italy, and this is the reason why it’s called alla Sorrentina. A simple tomato sauce, fresh basil, mozzarella and a little Parmisan cheese are the final ingredients for this delicious first course.
This is the way I sometimes recycle leftover gnocchi.
