  • 250g fresh mozzarella, torn
  • ¼ cup freshly grated parmesan
  • Fresh basil leaves, for garnish
  • Extra virgin olive oil, for serving

Meanwhile, heat an ovenproof medium non stick frypan or casserole dish over medium heat. Pour in Providore d’Italia Sugo and bring to a simmer.

Tip

A salad of bitter leaves like rocket and radicchio would complement this rich, mildly flavoured gnocchi dish.
