  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 120g chorizo, diced
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp Grumpy Gary's Smokey Hot Sauce (adjust to taste)
  • 600g fresh gnocchi
  • 125g mozzarella ball, cut into chunks
  • Small bunch of basil, torn
  • Green salad, to serve


  1. Preheat the oven: Preheat your oven to 200°C (400°F).

  2. Prepare the sauce: Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the crushed garlic and diced chorizo, and cook for another 2-3 minutes until the chorizo starts to release its oils.

  3. Add tomatoes and seasoning: Pour in the chopped tomatoes and caster sugar. Stir well and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  4. Incorporate Grumpy Gary's Smokey Hot Sauce: Stir in 2-3 tablespoons of Grumpy Gary's Smokey Hot Sauce, adjusting the amount based on your desired level of spiciness. Mix well to combine.

  5. Cook the gnocchi: Meanwhile, cook the fresh gnocchi in a large pot of salted boiling water according to package instructions, usually for 2-3 minutes or until they float to the surface. Drain well.

  6. Combine and bake: Add the cooked gnocchi to the skillet with the sauce, tossing gently to coat the gnocchi evenly. Sprinkle the chunks of mozzarella over the top.

  7. Bake: Transfer the skillet to the preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

  8. Serve: Remove from the oven and sprinkle torn basil leaves over the top. Serve hot with a side of green salad.

This version of baked gnocchi with Grumpy Gary's Smokey Hot Sauce combines the rich flavors of chorizo and tomato sauce with a spicy kick from the hot sauce. It's a hearty and flavorful dish that's perfect for a comforting meal. Enjoy!
