  • Summary

    This hearty meal is ready in just 30 minutes. Store-bought gnocchi (Italian for "dumplings") cook in just a few minutes, so they're faster than pasta. You'll have extra meat sauce left over to make Summer Beef-and-Rice Casserole later in the week.

    Ingredients

    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 3 pounds ground chuck (80 percent lean)
    • 1 medium yellow onion, diced small
    • 3 carrots, shredded
    • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
    • Salt and pepper
    • 2 cans (28 ounces each) whole peeled tomatoes, pureed in a blender
    • 1 pound fresh or frozen gnocchi, cooked according to package instructions
    • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan (1 ounce)
    • Fresh basil leaves (optional)
