Gnocchi Filled With Spicy Sausage & Arrabbiata Sauce

Traditional, non-filled gnocchi have a long history in Italian cuisine, dating all the way back to Ancient Roman times. Gnocchi in tomato sauce can be traced all the way back to the 16th century, as a meal served during the first of Verona's iconic Carnevale in 1531. Carnival is an annual event taking place before Lent, a period during which meat is traditionally given up.

Gnocchi in tomato sauce became a filling and delicious vegetarian alternative, and is still served at Verona’s Carnival annually. Filled gnocchi, however, are a 21st-century upgrade. We carefully fill each individual gnocco with n'duja, a celebrated staple of Calabrian cuisine. Made with cuts of pork meat hailing from the rugged local landscape and flavoured with roasted local spicy peppers, this forms a soft sausage with a brilliantly warm and spicy taste.

Not shying away from heat in this dish, we serve our n'duja-stuffed gnocchi with a homemade arrabiata sauce, made with beautiful chillies and tomatoes from Sicily.
