It was a lazy weeknight and we wanted to make use of the stuff we had left over in the fridge from the weekend and ended up with this dish. It requires very few ingredients and the addition of ready made Woolworths Creamy Tomato pasta sauce makes this a meal that can be done in under 30 minutes if you aren't making your own gnocchi.

In a medium saucepan heat the olive oil before frying the onion, garlic and chilli until fragrant
