Ingredients

  • 2 large leeks, sliced
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 275g cherry tomatoes, or baby plum tomatoes, halved
  • 1 x 200g pack shredded kale
  • 1 x 500g pack fresh gnocchi
  • 1 x 250g tub ricotta
  • grated zest and juice of ½ lemon
  • 30g Parmesan or vegetarian alternative, grated finely

Step by step

  1. Cook the leeks in 1½ tablespoons of olive oil in a large, deep lidded pan for 3-4 minutes until soft, adding seasoning and a splash of water, then tip out onto a plate. Meanwhile, preheat the grill, and bring a large pan of salted water to the boil.
  2. Add another 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the pan with the garlic and tomatoes and cook for 1 minute. Pile in the kale, add some seasoning and a good splash of water and cook for 3-4 minutes until it has wilted, stirring once or twice, then remove from the heat and add the leeks back to the pan.
  3. Tip the gnocchi into the pan of water and cook for 2 minutes. When they are ready, they will float to the surface. Meanwhile, mash the ricotta with the lemon zest and juice, 20g of Parmesan and seasoning to taste.
  4. Drain the gnocchi, then combine with the kale and tomatoes and tip it all into a large ovenproof dish. Dollop on the ricotta mixture randomly, making sure that bits of kale stay exposed. Drizzle with 1⁄2 tablespoon of oil and scatter with the rest of the Parmesan. Pop under the grill for 5 minutes or until the top is golden and you have some nice crispy bits forming.
