1 17.5 ounce package of gnocchi

1 28 ounce can of diced tomatoes

1/4 cup diced onions

3 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

2 tablespoon mascarpone cheese

1/4 cup pecorino romano, grated

arugula, chopped

  1. Bring a medium saucepan of water to boil.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the tomatoes, onions, butter, oregano and salt into a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and cook uncovered for 10 minutes.
  3. Add the mascarpone to the sauce, and stir. Continue to cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Add the gnocchi to the boiling water. Once it floats to the top, remove the gnocchi and set aside in a bowl.
  5. Discard the water from the pan and add the gnocchi back into the pan. Add the pecorino and chopped arugula to the gnocchi. Stir.
  6. Top with the creamy tomato sauce. Stir and serve warm.
