  • 2 large red peppers 

  • 1 medium brown onion, chopped 

  • 1 tsp olive oil 

  • 1 tsp dried basil 

  • 1 tsp dried oregano 

  • 1 tsp rosemary 

  • 2 tsp paprika 

  • 1⁄4 cup water 

  • 1 tin of butter beans 

  • 1kg gnocchi (gluten free)

  • Salt & pepper to season 


  1. Preheat the oven to 200C. In an oven proof tray place the peppers in whole
    and roast for 20 minutes. The skins should be charcoaled when it’s cooked.
    Leave to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, add the olive oil to a frying pan on a medium heat. Add the
    chopped onions and lightly fry for around 10 minutes (until they are soft).
  3. Once the peppers are cooked, on a chopping board start to peel the skin
    off and remove the seeds and stalk. Chop roughly.
  4. Take the pan off the heat and season with the spices and salt and pepper.
    Mix together and leave to cool.
  5. Mix together the onions, peppers and butter beans with the water and
    then add into a food processor. Whiz until smooth. You may need to add a
    little more water here depending on how thick you like the sauce to be.
  6. Finally, cook the gnocchi according to the packet instructions. Drain.
  7. While this is cooking, heat up the sauce. Then mix through the gnocchi
    and serve.
