Tender potato gnocchi make a nice change from the usual pasta. This quick sauce, capturing ripe tomatoes and fresh Canadian Ricotta cheese and cream with a hit of fresh basil is simple perfection.
3. Cherry Tomatoes
4. Garlic CLoves, Minced
5. Bella Casara Ricotta Cheese
6. 10% or 18% Cream
7. Chopped fresh basil

Note: In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook gnocchi according to package directions until just tender. Drain. Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat; add butter and swirl to coat pan. Add tomatoes and sauté for about 3 min or until tomatoes start to brown and burst. Add garlic; sauté for 1 min. Remove pan from heat and stir in Ricotta cheese, then cream and a pinch of salt and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper. Return to low heat and heat gently, stirring, until steaming.
