Ingredients

  • 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

Method

  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.
