400g/14oz can chopped tomatoes

1 tbsp garlic infused oil

1 tbsp chopped chives

1 sprig rosemary or thyme, or a couple of bay leaves

pinch of crushed chilies (optional)

60g/2¼oz packet wild rocket

For the gluten free gnocchi

500g/1lb 2oz waxy potatoes such as red skins or new potatoes, peeled and diced

15g/½oz fresh basil leaves, finely chopped

200g/7oz plain gluten free flour

salt and freshly ground black pepper


Begin by making the sauce. Place the tomatoes in a small pan, then half fill the can with water and add that to the pan.

Stir in the garlic infused oil, herbs, chilies and salt and black pepper. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for at least an hour until thickened and dark red.

Meanwhile, to make the gnocchi, boil the potatoes for 10-15 minutes until tender then drain.

Mash them well - this bit is important because lumps will be noticeable in the gnocchi, so use a potato ricer if you have one, or mash the potatoes thoroughly to as smooth a texture as possible.

Sprinkle over the basil, plenty of salt and black pepper and the gluten free flour. Using a wooden spoon or your hands, bring together to make a firm dough.

Knead the dough gently for a couple of minutes then roll out into sausages about 1cm (0.5in) thick. Cut the sausages into pieces 2.5cm(1in) long.

Gently cook the gnocchi in a pan of simmering water for a minute or two until they rise to the surface. Scoop them out as they rise, toss with the tomato sauce and rocket leaves and serve.
