Italian tomato Gnocchi with basil pesto
These are Ninas Sweet potato gnocchi but made with tomatoes and basil. The perfect dish to get some summer vibes back 😉
Ingredients for 4:
- 6 Tomatoes
- Handful fresh Basil
- 2 Sweet potaoes
- 1 tsp tomato paste
- 1/2 cup low fat cream cheese
- 1 eggs
- 2-3 cups spelt flour
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp fresh pepper
- Fresh Basil Pesto
How to start
First of all you need to roast the skinned sweet potatoes and the tomatoes in the oven for 30 minutes at 200°C. Let it cool slightly and purree the roasted tomatoes, sweet potatoes and tomato paste with some fresh basil in a mixer.
Combine all the all remaining ingredients with the purred mixture in a large mixing bowl and put them roughly together to a dough. If the dough is two wet work more flour into the dough.
Put the dough on a floured surface and cut it into 4 pieces.
Roll every piece into a 1 inch thick roll and cut it into 1/2 inch long gnocchi . Make sure that the surface is covered with enough flour otherwise the gnocchis will stick to the surface.
You have to boil the gnocchis for about 8 minutes. Make sure that the water is enough salted. After boiling put the gnocchis straight from the boiling water into the basil pesto, garnish with some fresh parmigiano!
