  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 pound store bought gnocchi
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt plus more to taste
  • 1 shallot thinly sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic roughly chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • fresh basil to garnish
  • 1-2 balls burrata to serve


  • Add the olive oil into a large skillet. Add the cherry tomatoes into the oil and saute for 3-5 minutes until blistered. Once blistered, add the shallot, garlic and red pepper flakes to the skillet and heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Transfer the tomato mixture to a bowl.
  • Add the remaining olive oil and butter to the pan and heat until butter is melted.  Add gnocchi to the pan and cook on high, stirring frequently for about 5-6 minutes. Flip the gnocchi evenly in the pan for crisp texture on all sides. Add the tomatoes back to the pan, sprinkle half the parmesan and give a quick stir to coat well. Remove the gnocchi from the pan and serve with remaining grated parmesan and fresh basil and a small ball of burrata on each portion.
