Total Time 55 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 3 medium heirloom tomatoes, cored and cut in half
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 16 oz gnocchi, boiled according to package instructions and patted dry
  • 1 small onion
  • 1/4 cup red wine (or chicken broth)
  • 1/4 cup half and half cream
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh oregano
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil
  • 6 oz fresh burrata cheese


  • Arrange tomatoes cut-side up on a baking sheet and sprinkle with minced garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Drizzle with olive oil.
  • Roast heirloom tomatoes at 375F 25-30 minutes or until tomatoes are very softened. Remove from oven and allow to cool then carefully remove skins and as many seeds as you can. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt butter then add gnocchi in a single layer in pan. Sear gnocchi several minutes on each side, turning once until gnocchi is golden-brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  • In remaining pan drippings, saute onion until very lightly browned. Add red wine (or chicken broth) and saute until liquid is almost evaporated. Add roasted tomatoes to pan, smashing with a wooden spoon to break down tomatoes.
  • Bring sauce to a low simmer over medium-high heat, continually smashing to break up tomatoes. Reduce heat to medium and add cream, oregano, basil, and seared gnocchi. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Arrange mozzarella cheese on top and broil gnocchi skillet under high 1-2 minutes until cheese is lightly browned. Serve gnocchi hot and enjoy!
