DIRECTIONS
01

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Tie a string tightly across a pot with two side handles. Fill the pot with water, add a large pinch of salt, and bring to a boil.

02

Combine the ricotta, Parmesan cheese, eggs and salt in a large mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Add the flour in 2 batches and stir with a rubber spatula to combine and all flour is incorporated.

03

Add the dough to a large gallon zip-top bag. Snip off the tip of the bag and squeeze the gnocchi batter into the water using the string to separate them. Boil for 3 minutes. Use a spider to remove to a baking sheet and continue working in batches.

04

Add Rao’s Homemade® Tomato Basil Sauce to a large saucepan and heat over medium heat while stirring to heat through. Carefully transfer the gnocchi and stir in the tomatoes. Spoon into a greased 1 1/2-quart baking dish and add torn mozzarella to the top.

05

Bake for 25 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbling. Garnish with fresh basil.
