This Baked Gnocchi will quickly become one of your go-to dinners. It’s amazingly easy making it perfect for those nights when you’re low on prep time or don’t want to put in a lot of effort. It’s a deliciously fresh-tasting and satisfying dish made with just a handful of simple ingredients.
So, I have been loving Gnocchi lately! I have always loved Gnocchi especially Gnocchi Soup from Olive Garden but I just realized that you can use it in so many different recipes.
The ingredient list is so short and this comes together so fast- it’s just the bake time that can be a little long but well worth it! So bake, serve, and reheat as needed for your family. I don’t know if you will have any leftovers but they will taste even better than the first time!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 lb ground beef
- 1 small onion, diced
- 3 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1 (24-ounce) jar marinara sauce
- 6 cups cooked gnocchi
- 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
- 3 tablespoons chopped chives
- 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, torn into pieces
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly oil a 9 x 13 baking dish or coat with nonstick spray.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef and onion, and cook until beef has browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat.
Stir in garlic until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Stir in vinegar, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pot.
Stir in marinara sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until flavors have blended about 5 minutes. Stir in gnocchi, and Parmesan until well combined, about 1-2 minutes.
Spread gnocchi mixture into the prepared baking dish; top with mozzarella. Place into oven and bake until bubbly, about 20-25 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes.
Serve immediately, garnished with chives, if desired.
