If you like pesto, you'll love this sesame twist! Sesame seeds add toasty nuttiness to your homemade basil pesto, which you'll toss through gnocchi and serve with rosemary-infused roasted tomatoes.

Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1

Preheat the oven to 220°C/ 200°C (fan)/ 425°F/ Gas 7

Chop the tomato[es] into wedges

Strip the rosemary leaves from their stems, discard the stems

2

Add the tomato wedges to a baking tray with the plum tomatoes, cherry tomatoesgarlic cloves (skins on) and rosemary leaves

Drizzle everything with olive oil, season with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and give everything a good mix up

Put the tray in the oven for 20 min or until starting to blister and char

Tip: Crowd the tomatoes together for the best blistering!

3

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a generous drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat with a pinch of salt

Once hot, add the gnocchi and cook for 8-10 min or until beginning to crisp

Tip: Don't stir too often as this will prevent the gnocchi from crisping!

4

Meanwhile, add the toasted sesame seeds to a food processor with half the grated Italian hard cheese and the basil

Add 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] olive oil, 3 tbsp [6 tbsp] cold water and 1/4 tsp [1/2 tsp] salt

Pulse until roughly blitzed

5

Once the tomatoes are done, remove the tray from the oven

Carefully remove the skins from the roasted garlic cloves (they will be hot!)

Add the roasted garlic to the food processor (not a fan of garlic? Just add a little!) and pulse again until combined – this is your sesame seed pesto

6

Crush the roasted tomatoes with the back of a fork to release the juices

7

Once the gnocchi is crispy, add the sesame seed pesto to the pan and give everything a good mix up until the pesto fully coats the gnocchi – this is your sesame seed pesto gnocchi
