Grated Italian Style Hard Cheese(ContainsMilk, Egg)
Quarter the cherry tomatoes. Remove the top and bottom from the courgette. Cut lengthways into 1cm wide strips then chop into 1cm chunks. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Finely chop the pine nuts and three-quarters of the basil (stalks and all).TIP: If you have a pestle and mortar, use that. If not, make sure you chop everything as small as possible - no bigger than a grain of rice. Put the crème fraîche in a bowl and mix in the garlic, pine nuts, chopped basil and hard Italian cheese. Season with black pepper. Stir and set aside.
Put a drizzle of oil in a frying pan on high heat. When hot, add the gnocchi and fry until golden, 6 mins. Season with a pinch of salt and a grind of black pepper.
Add the courgette to your pan. Fry for another 2 mins.
Add the cherry tomatoes to your pan. Cook for 1 minute more or until they are warmed through.
Take your pan off the heat and mix in the creamy pesto. Serve the gnocchi in bowls, topped with the remaining basil leaves and a wedge of lemon on the side. Buon appetito!
