The Summer has pretty much been a wash out, (when I made this I was watching torrential rain battering my window). So comfort food was the order of the day. Chorizo makes anything taste good, add some gnocchi and cream and you have a little bowl of heaven.
500 Grams Gnocchi (I use shop bought)
75 Grams Chorizo (finely sliced)
1 Onion (thinly sliced)
1 Large red pepper (cut into 2cm cubes)
50 Grams Sun dried tomatoes (finely chopped)
2 Tbsp Olive oil (I sometimes like to use the oil that the sun dried tomatoes comes in, as it has loads of flavour)
1 Tbsp Tomato puree
125 ml Double cream
Salt and pepper
- Heat 1 table spoon of oil in a large pan, and fry the chorizo, red pepper and onion until soft, remove from the pan and set to one side
- Add the rest of the oil to the pan to heat, add then and the gnocchi, and brown gently all over.
- Stir in the tomato puree and cook for another 1-2 minutes, add the sun dried tomatoes and the chorizo and peppers and onion you removed from the pan earlier
- Add the cream and stir well ensuring everything is well coated, check if you think it needs salt or pepper. Cook for another 2-3 minutes to reduce the cream if necessary
