Gnocci with Tomato and Basil Sauce

Yesterday I had a friend over for dinner so I decided to try one of my special new Weight Watchers recipes: Gnocci with Tomato and Basil Sauce. I paired this with a nice green salad. We absolutely loved this dish!!

Gnocci with Tomato and Basil Sauce
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion (I used red onion)
2 garlic cloves
1 can tomatoes (appr. 400 grams)
1 pinch of sugar
2 tbsp tomatopuree
250 ml cream (light)
40 grams sundried tomatoes, without oil (I left this out, since I didn't have any at hand)
400 grams potato gnocci
fresh basil, pepper and salt to taste
60 grams grated parmesan

Dice the onion, cook for about 2 minutes in a pan with the olive oil untill tender. Squeeze the garlic cloves, add them to the onion. Dice the canned tomatoes and add them, juice included, to the onion and garlic. Also add the tomatopuree and a pinch of sugar. Let this simmer for about 5 minutes.

Lower the heat and stirr in the cream. Finely slice the sundried tomatoes and add them to the mixture. Add sliced basil, pepper and salt to taste and let this simmer for another 3 minutes.

Prepare the gnocci according to the instructions on the package. Toss everything together, garnish with a basil leave and some parmesan cheese and enjoy!!!
