WHB: Bread Gnocchi

'Bread Gnocchi' is one of those rarest of RR's recipes that I liked... making the authentic 'Gnocchi' does take some time, but this recipe is a quicky version with a prep time of less than 15 mins.

I gave an aromatic twist to RR recipe, instead of basil..I used some fresh Rosemary...:). Its strange that I never bothered to use this versatile herb before...but I am glad, I did it this time. ..:)

Adapted from here.


8 slices of Whole Wheat bread (Recommended: Italian Bread)
3 tbsp Olive Oil
2 tbsp Butter
3-4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
Salt & Pepper
1 sprig of fresh Rosemary, palm crushed
2 cups of pureed Tomato


1. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Chop bread into bite size pieces. Add olive oil, butter and garlic to the skillet.

2. Melt butter into oil then add fresh rosemary and bread. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Toss and cook the bread 7 to 8 minutes then add the pureed tomato. Turn to coat and warm the tomato sauce, 3 to 4 minutes.

4. Serve immediately.

For a Cheesy twist:

Transfer the contents to a casserole dish, top with any cheese. Place the casserole under the broiler and cook 2 to 3 minutes, until the cheese browns and bubbles.

Off this dish goes to Weekend Herb Blogging, coined by Kalyn and this week guest hosted by my dear friend Divya of Dil Se..:)

Have a great Sunday ahead.
