  • 15 ml (1 tablespoon) olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 30 ml (2 tablespoons) maple syrup

  • 500 ml (2 cups) homemade or store-bought tomato sauce
  • Salt and ground pepper, to taste
  • Basil leaves, chopped, to taste
  • Parmesan, grated or flakes, to taste


  1. Heat oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Sauté onion and garlic for a few seconds. Add maple syrup and gnocchi, reduce heat, and caramelize for 5 minutes or until gnocchi is crisp and golden. Stir often to ensure all sides are nicely caramelized.

  3. Just before serving, sprinkle with basil leaves and garnish with Parmesan, if desired.
