What you'll need
Egg, plain flour, olive oil, brown sugar
1. Prepare potatoes
Place potato in a steamer basket over a saucepan simmering water. Steam for 10 minutes or until tender. Transfer to a bowl. Mash until almost smooth. Cool slightly.
2. Prepare dough
Add egg, flour and parmesan cheese to potato. Mix well. If dough is very soft and not staying together, add more flour. Turn dough out onto a slightly floured work surface. Knead dough until smooth.
Divide dough into 4 portions. Roll each portion into a 2cm-thick log. Using a slightly floured knife, cut logs into 3cm pieces.
4. Cook gnocchi
Cook gnocchi, in 4 batches, in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 3 minutes or until gnocchi floats to the surface. Using a slotted spoon, transfer gnocchi to a large heatproof bowl.
5. Make the sauce
To make the sauce, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, then add the tomatoes and brown sugar. Simmer sauce for 10 minutes or until thickened. Add fresh basil leaves and stir through. Add gnocchi to the pan, and toss to gently coat.
Serve gnocchi topped with extra parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves.
