Another favourite one pot, my meatballs and gnocchi are incredibly easy to make and taste amazing!
I love comfort food and my One Pot Meatballs and Gnocchi really hits the spot! Using pre-made meatballs, this meal is quick and easy to make. Serve over pasta or with a side salad and crusty bread for dipping. Yum!
Feel free to use either pork, beef or lamb meatballs. Or a combination as I have here with the beef and pork. Colby cheese would make a good substitute for mozzarella if you can't find any.
How to make One Pot Meatballs and Gnocchi:
Add olive oil to a large pan and bring to a medium heat. Add in the meatballs and brown them for five minutes. Stir in garlic and gnocchi and combine them with the meatballs.
Mix the Italian herbs and honey with the vegetable stock then pour into the pan, along with the crushed tomatoes. Carefully mix everything together and simmer for 10 minutes until the meatballs and gnocchi are cooked through.
Slice the mozzarella into pieces and lay on top of the meatballs and gnocchi. Once the mozzarella has melted, sprinkle over the basil and serve with a fresh salad and crusty bread.
