A Warming Friday Supper

One positive about being inside so much is that it might encourage me to get into cooking. Baking and cooking can be a great thing to do with children at home but even if you’re cooking for one, it can be a very therapeutic activity. I asked some chef friends to share some of their easiest at-home recipes that are isolation friendly. Gaby Dalkin has shared two of my favourite recipes from What’s Gaby Cooking, one of which is the perfect warming Friday supper. The recipe is very easy and can be tweaked to accommodate things you might not be able to find in the supermarket. Commit to trying this over the weekend…and then enjoy your handiwork in front of a film.

Cheesy Baked Gnocchi by What’s Gaby Cooking

This is a really good one for a very quick midweek supper; warming and delicious. The gnocchi might be easier to get hold of than dried pasta. What you’ll need (serves 4):

-1 lb gnocchi

-4 oz pancetta or bacon

-1 chopped shallot

-2 cloves chopped garlic

-1 teaspoon paprika

-15 oz chopped tomatoes

-1 tablespoon tomato paste

-handful of halved cherry tomatoes

-1 teaspoon sugar

-3 tablespoons double cream

-torn fresh basil

-salt and pepper

-10 oz torn fresh mozzarella

Instructions: pre heat the oven to 200 degrees C. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and cook the gnocchi until they start to float. Once they float, remove them and immediately submerge them in an ice bath. Once cold, remove, drain and set aside. Add the pancetta (or bacon) to a medium pan over a medium high heat and cook until the pancetta has browned. Pour off the fat, reduce the heat slightly and add the shallot, garlic and paprika. Cook for 30 seconds,

Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, cherry tomatoes and sugar and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cream. Add the gnocchi to the sauce and season with salt and pepper and torn basil. Transfer the gnocchi and sauce to an oven-proof dish and top with the torn mozzarella. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes until the mozzarella melts. Remove and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
