1 medium-sized cooking onion (chopped)

3 cloves of garlic (minced)

1 can of Whole Plum Tomatoes (no salt added)

2 Tbsp of dried oregano

1-2 tsp of cayenne pepper (dried)

2 tbsp raw coconut sugar, S&P to taste

1 package of gluten-free

low sodium gnocchi (egg and dairy free) – I used San Remo.

Directions:

  1. Heat a large sauce pan and add olive oil, onion and garlic.

  2. Sauté until onions are translucent.

  3. Next, add the tomatoes, lentils and all the spices.

  4. Bring to a boil and simmer for 20-25 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of water to boil.

  6. Add fresh gnocchi to the boiling water for about 2 minutes or until they float to the top of the pot!

  7. Drain.

  8. Toss the gnocchi in the sauce.

I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I did!!
