1 hr 10 min
30 min
4 servings (makes extra sauce)



In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and heat to the verge of smoking. Add the ground meat and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and continue to stir and cook until the meat is medium well, about 5 minutes. Next, deglaze the pan with the wine, stirring and scraping. Then add the onions and continue to cook until well cooked off, an additional 5 minutes.

To the same pan, add the red sauce, thyme, garlic and salt and pepper to taste. Continue to cook over medium heat until the sauce comes to a boil; reduce the heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes.

Add the cream and cook on low heat for 10 minutes. Add the cooked gnocchi and stir with a spoon to allow the sauce to coat the gnocchi. This should take 2 minutes.

To serve, spoon the sauced gnocchi into a bowl, top with the ricotta and finish with Parmesan cheese.
