  • 1/4 cup (2 oz or 60 ml) dry white wine
  • 1 can (28 oz. or 785 g) whole plum tomatoes with juice, crushed by hand

  • 1Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium flame until hot. Add the onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally until onion is translucent. Add the wine and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated. Then, add tomatoes with juice, 1 can tomato sauce, basil, and red pepper flakes. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer until slightly thick, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Turn off the heat; cover to keep warm.
  • 2Bring a large pot water to a rolling boil; add 1 tablespoon salt. Add half package of the gnocchi; when they float to the top (after about 2 minutes), take them out with a slotted spoon into the saucepan with sauce. Repeat process with remaining gnocchi. Stir to coat well with sauce.
