Baked Gnocchi with Vodka Sauce

This delicious dish features a homemade five-ingredient vodka sauce that is sure to satisfy! Featuring Bozza's Potato Ricotta Gnocchi, this dish is rich, creamy, and baked to perfection.


For the Vodka Sauce:

2 tablespoons of butter

2 cloves of garlic - grated, minced, or very thinly sliced

6 ounces of tomato paste 

1/4 cup of vodka

1 cup of heavy cream

1 cup of chicken broth or water

1 teaspoon of kosher salt 

For the Gnocchi:

1 pound of gnocchi

1/2 cup of fresh mozzarella cheese - chopped into bite-size chunks - or mozzarella balls

1/2 cup of grated Parmesan cheese 

Fresh parsley or basil 


For the Vodka Sauce:

1. Heat the butter in a large oven-safe pan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and sauté for 5 minutes until soft (don't let it brown). Add in the tomato paste and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Add in the vodka and sauté for 1-2 minutes. Add the cream, broth, and salt and bring to a low simmer. Once the sauce coats the back of a spoon, remove it from the heat, and set it aside. 

For the Gnocchi:

1. Prepare the gnocchi according to the package directions. 

1.1. For Bozza's Potato Ricotta Gnocchi, place the gnocchi in 4 quarts of salted boiling water. Wait 15 seconds and stir gently. Boil 4 - 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, then drain. 

2. Add the cooked gnocchi to the sauce in the pan, and stir gently to combine. 

To Bake the Gnocchi:

1. Preheat the oven to the broil setting (500 degrees F). Arrange the mozzarella over the top and sprinkle with the grated parmesan cheese.

2. Bake for 5-8 minutes until very browned and slightly crisped on top. Sprinkle with parsley or basil and serve.
