When we dined out at Red Zucchini Italian Restaurant, I really liked a comfort food dish called Gnocchi al Norma.

It was a simple vegetarian classic potato gnocchi served with baked ricotta, basil, Napolitana sauce and topped with eggplants.

Tonight, I am recreating something similar and I've also topped my gnoochi with some shaved ham :)

This is an ultimate comfort food dish.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 6 servings

1 packet of potato gnocchi
200g fresh baby rocket salad
150g shaved ham
1 large eggplant
1 brown onion
1 jar of ricotta sauce
1 clove of garlic
4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoon fresh Parmesan cheese
3 tomato
Salt and black pepper to season

Cook potato gnocchi in boiling salt water according to packet instruction.
Lightly spray with olive oil to prevent stickiness.

Cut eggplant into large bite-size chunks.
Heat oil in a small skillet over medium high heat.
Deep fry until the eggplant turn golden on all sides.
Remove and blot off the excessive oil on paper towel.

Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a frypan over medium heat and crisp up the shaved ham. Remove.

In the same frypan, fry the garlic and onion until fragrant.
Add in the fried eggplant and tomato.

Pour in the ricotta sauce (or tomato puree paste) and stir to evenly cover all ingredients.

Add the gnocchi into the pan.
Reduce heat to medium.

Evenly coat the gnocchi in the rich tomato sauce.
Add in the rocket leave (basil would work as well).

You can add in more ricotta cheese at this point.
Let the sauce simmer to intensify the flavour and colour.

Divide the gnocchi into 6 equal servings.
(Gnocchi are very filling, so reduce the serving portion)
Top with shaved ham and fresh parmesan cheese shaves .
Season with black pepper.
Garnish with baby rocket and herbs.

Omit the shaved ham if you are a vegetarian.

A really good hearty pasta dish and it tastes even better when reheated the next day.
