Gnocchi Alla Sorrentina is a classic Italian dish that originated from the Amalfi coast in Italy. On its own this is a simple, yet wonderful pasta dish. For me however, I really enjoy the combination of both chicken & gnocchi and so for this dish I have added chicken to the recipe.
The chicken and gnocchi are initially cooked before being added to the thick, rich tomato & parmesan cheese based sauce. The sauce also has a subtle hint of basil to enhance it’s flavour. The dish is then topped with mozzarella and extra parmesan before being baked in the oven to allow the cheese to melt perfectly over the chicken and gnocchi. A very simple, yet tasty pasta meal.
This is one of the more simple pasta dishes to make. There are very few ingredients and the steps are easy to follow. This is a dish to turn to when you want a break from the lavish cream based pasta meals and want to turn back to something basic and simple, without forgoing taste.
