  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup dry red wine
  • 1 (14 ounce or 400 gram) can tomato sauce
  • 1 (14 ounce or 400 gram) can diced tomatoes
  • 2 teaspoons organic granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 1 (16 ounce or 454 gram) package shelf-stable potato gnocchi
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh basil leaves
  1. Coat the bottom of a medium pot with the olive oil and place it over medium heat.

  2. When the oil is hot, add the onion. Cook the onion for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it becomes soft and translucent.

  3. Stir in the garlic and cook it with the onion for about 1 minute, until very fragrant.

  4. Stir in the wine and bring it up to a simmer. Let it cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes.

  5. Stir in the tomato sauce, tomatoes, sugar, oregano, and red pepper flakes.

  6. Bring the sauce to a simmer and let it cook for 15 to 20 minutes, until slightly thickened.

  7. When the sauce has about 10 minutes left to cook, begin bringing a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the gnocchi and cook it according to the package directions.

  8. Drain the cooked gnocchi into a colander.

  9. When the sauce has finished simmering, remove the pot from heat.

  10. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste, and stir in the basil. Stir in the gnocchi.

  11. Divide onto plates and serve.
