  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 1 medium eggplant, cut into 2cm pieces

  • 200g punnet Perino grape tomatoes
  • 1 cup (250ml) tomato pasta sauce (such as passata)
  • 500g pkt potato gnocchi
  • 1/2 cup basil leaves
  • 1/3 cup (25g) finely grated parmesan

Method

STEP 1

Heat half the oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the sausage, stirring, for 4 mins or until brown all over. Transfer to a plate. Heat remaining oil in pan over medium-high heat. Cook the onion, stirring, for 3-4 mins or until soft. Add the eggplant and zucchini and cook, stirring, for 2-3 mins or until golden brown.

STEP 2

Add the tomatoes, pasta sauce and sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins or until the vegetables are tender and the sauce thickens.

STEP 3

Meanwhile, cook the gnocchi in a large saucepan of boiling water following packet directions or until just tender. Drain, reserving ½ cup (125ml) of the cooking liquid.

STEP 4

Add the basil, gnocchi and reserved cooking liquid to the sausage mixture. Toss over medium-high heat for 1-2 mins or until heated through. Serve with the parmesan.
