Family Bolognese Gnocchi with Thyme & Parmesan Cheese
Ingredients (serves four):
|500g||gnocchi (Note: using extra gnocchi will alter the flavor)|
|2 tbs||olive oil|
|1||red onion, finely sliced|
|1||carrot, peeled & finely diced|
|2 cloves||garlic, peeled & crushed|
|600g||pork & veal mince|
|1 sachet||tomato paste|
|2 tsp||red wine vinegar|
|2 tins||diced tomatoes|
|100g||baby spinach leaves, washed|
|50g||Parmesan cheese, finely grated|
|1 Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Add the gnocchi and cook until the gnocchi rises to the surface (approximately 2-3 minutes). Drain really well. Transfer to a plate and pat dry with a tea towel to absorb any remaining water (this will help the gnocchi crisp up).
2 Heat half of the olive oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the gnocchi in 2-3 batches and fry for 3-4 minutes, or until they are golden brown. Set the gnocchi aside.
3 Heat the remaining olive oil in the same frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the red onion and carrot and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes, or until soft. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute, or until fragrant. Add the pork & veal mince and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, for 4-5 minutes, or until browned. Add the tomato paste, red wine vinegar and diced tomatoes and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Stir through the baby spinach leaves and season to taste with salt and pepper.
4 Add the gnocchi to the Bolognese sauce and stir through to heat.
5 To serve, divide the pasta between bowls and top with the Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
