Mediterranean Gnocchi with Tomatoes- OlivesPhoto credit: © Eatwell101.com


1. Preheat your oven to 420°F (210°C). Slice grape tomatoes in half lengthwise, cut zucchini lengthwise then make 1/4 inch slices.

2. In a 10-inch or larger cast iron skillet, add the tomatoes, zucchini, garlic, onion, fennel seeds, and gnocchi. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil and add one tablespoon water. Season with salt and pepper, toss to combine, and put in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes until gnocchi has soaked in the juices and tomatoes and zucchini are slightly browned.

3. Remove the skillet from the oven and stir in the chopped scallion and cheese (optional). Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and serve the gnocchi immediately.

Recipe notes: We specify a cast iron skillet because we think it guarantees an even browning in the oven and allows a quick reheat on the stove if necessary.  However, any deep skillet or sauté pan that goes to the oven should work as well provided it doesn’t have a nonstick coating; a good old baking dish could also do the trick.

    Overall, I love the combination of ingredients! The cherry tomatoes were great to balance out the gnocchi and zucchini. I did think there was too much fennel, which kinda drowned out the flavors of the produce, so I'd likely do about 1/2 to 3/4 the amount next time.

    I just tried this this evening and my husband and I both loved it. Who knew cherry tomatoes had so much flavour! I didn’t have fennel on hand but substituted it for a Summer Savoury. In answer to an inquiry, I did use frozen gnocchi and it turned out great. I added cheese and a little frozen bacon I had on hand during the last 8 minutes of baking on the oven. My oven was set at 375 degrees as I wanted to warm up some garlic bread a well.

    Can I use frozen gnocchi, or should I defrost first or does it have to be fresh only.
