Gnocchi with mushrooms, onions, and garlic in a spicy Sriracha tomato sauce, then tossed with fresh basil. This fresh basil and mushroom gnocchi in sriracha tomato sauce is refreshing with a hint of heat.
  • 12 ounce parmesan gnocchi
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup sliced onion
  • 1 ½ cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 – 14.5 ounce diced tomatoes
  • 1 large fresh tomato, diced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons Sriracha sauce
  • ½ teaspoon granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • ⅓ cup basil, more for garnish
  1. In a medium sized pot, heat water and cook the gnocchi according to the directions on the package. Drain the gnocchi, rinse with water to keep the gnocchi from continuing to cook, and set them aside for now.
  2. In a large skillet, add olive oil over medium heat. Once the olive oil has heated, add minced garlic and cook until they’ve become aromatic and start to brown on the edges. Add sliced onions and mushrooms and cook them until they’ve softened.
  3. Pour in the canned tomatoes as well as the fresh diced tomatoes.
  4. Season the sauce with Italian seasoning, salt, Sriracha, and a little bit of sugar. The sauce may be a little chunky and dry so add a little bit of water too.
  5. Use a spatula to incorporate all the ingredients until well combined. Allow the sauce to simmer for a few minutes. Then remove the sauce from heat.
  6. Add the gnocchi and fresh basil. Toss until the gnocchi is well coated with the sauce.
  7. Plate the gnocchi and tomato sauce then add more torn basil leaves for garnish.
  8. Serve the fresh basil and mushroom gnocchi in spicy Sriracha tomato sauce warm.
