Dave's cooking corner -Week Two.


The Business
Oct 25, 2003
In a world of my own.
Morning All,

After the relative sucess of last weeks Dave's easy cooking to impress the Mrs or bag the local bike please find enclosed week two's efforts.

Gnocchi Grill Pie.


* Pack of Gnocchi (Enough for two people)
* Pack of Meatballs (You can buy meatballs pre-made in most decent supermarkets or make your own)
* Pack of Mushrooms (Sliced or diced)
* Tin of Sweetcorn.
* Jar of Tomato type pasta sauce (I recommend Napelese or Arribiata but pick one to suit your taste.
* Pack of Mozzarella (Break into small chunks)
* Fresh Basel. (Chopped finely.
* One large red or white onion. (Sliced or diced)
* Splash of Olive Oil.
* Garlic clove.


1) Whack the Oil in pan and heat. Once hot add the ,meatballs, onions , mushrooms & garlic into a pad and cook until they all start to brown. At the same time boil some water in a pan.

2) Once all the food in step one is cooking well whack the Gnocchi in the boiling pan - It wont need long - 3/4 mins at best. Mighr be a good idea to turn the grill on now to heat it up.

3) Once Gnocchi is cooked drain it. Add the pasta sauce and sweetcorn to your meatballs mixture and let simmer for a few mins. Once gnocchi is drained mix it into the pasta/meatballs etc mix and cook until boiling.All should now be in one par bar the Mozzarella and Basel.

4) Add the entire contents of the pan into a heatproof dish and spread evenly. Whack your mozzarella which should be in chunks ontop of the gnocci/meatball mix and put under the grill until the mozzarella bubbles.

5) Serve with a bit of fresh basel sprinkled over the top. Max cook time is about ten mins from start to finish and costs is less that say £7 for two.

Not quite as tasty as last weeks but a nice alternative to a Lasange......

Good Luck
