 My new favourite Italian recipe is one we watched Isabella Bliss, winner of Australian Junior Masterchef, cook while we were on holidays recently.  The kids helped Isabella make the gnocchi and I really enjoyed the eggplant in the sauce.  It was so good we had to try making it when we came home.

Ricotta Gnocchi with Eggplant Sauce

The original recipe uses a tin of tomatoes, I skip this and use a bottle of the Leggo’s Sugo di Pomodoro Italian Herbs with Basil, so much easier! And the kids liked the extra sauce over the eggplant.

Eggplant Sauce
  • 1 large eggplant, cut into 1.5cm dice
  • 2 tablespoons table salt
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 700g Leggo’s Sugo di Pomodoro Italian Herbs with Basil
  • 250g fresh ricotta
  • 200g romano cheese, grated, plus extra to serve
  • 1egg, lightly beaten
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • Basil leaves, to garnish

See full recipe instructions here

My kids helped, boy the kitchen got messy, but we had a lot of fun making dinner together

So delicious

I just submitted my recipe for Chicken & Mushroom Pesto Penne. I have been making this for years and I love the recipe as it is SO quick to throw together and, if you have unexpected guests – you can easily extend the recipe by adding an extra cup of pasta, a salad and some garlic bread.
YUM !!

I just submitted the Pollo Alla Cacciatora recipe to Leggo’s and your email. This is one of a few favourite recipes I was taught during a trip to Tuscany. I was fortunate enough to be taught by a lovely family at their Tuscan villa. Their passion and enthusiasm was so contagious! A culinary experience I will never forget.

Mushroom lasagne.. This was the first non traditional lasagne I ever made for my husband (who is a MASSIVE lasagne fan). He was not very keen on anything vegetarian but once he had eaten it, he said it was the best lasagne he had ever eaten!

Oh yum, we do potato gnocchi all the time but I’m going to have to give this one a go….as a kid with my Zia and my Mum and my sister cooking together was so much fun…I have 3 boys, not so much in to cooking but rolling the gnocchi is always a family activity.

I just submitted a bolognese recipe that uses all of the veggies left over after making a pot of stock. They are pureed before adding to the mixture so that the kids don’t know they are there adding nutritional value and lots of ‘yummyness’ to the sauce.

Ah, I just found this part! I’ve gone and commented in a completely different area of your blog! Oops!
I’ve submitted a favourite Creamy Fish Pie with Bread Crust.
It’s really delicious and a great way to get the family to eat fish!

I just submitted an eggplant lasagne recipe, I created it one night out of the cans and jars in the pantry and it has become a family favourite. It is super tasty, includes lots of grated veges hidden in the mince sauce, has an easy ricotta basil sauce and yummy pan fried eggplant. It is a all in one meal and my daughter loves making the ricotta and basil sauce as well as poking in the extra fresh basil :).

I’ve just submitted a Vegetable and Bacon Pasta recipe. I developed this recipe to encourage my toddler to eat more veggies with his evening meal, but it’s a dish the whole family loves. Smiles all around when I serve this for dinner!
