500gr packet fresh gnocchi (you can make them yourself but you can also find fresh gnocchi at the supermarket)
1 small leek, thickly sliced
200gr cream cheese
2 tbs tomato puree
1 or 2 tsp dried chili flakes (put as much as you want)
Zest of Lemon
a handful of parsley
150gr salmon fillet, chopped into small pieces
Preheat the oven to 200°C. Bring a pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Add the gnocchi and cook for 1-2 minutes, until cooked. (The gnocchi will float to the surface when they are ready.) Drain and reserve 250ml of the cooking water. Set aside.
Melt the butter in a wide, deep frying pan and gently fry the leek for 3-4 minutes, until soft. Stir in the cream cheese, tomato puree, chili flakes, lemon zest, parsley and reserved water (not a lot, until it covers your ingredients), until the cheese has melted and everything is combined. Adjust the seasoning.
Add the gnocchi and salmon to the frying pan and stir to coat. Spoon into a deep dish and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden on top. You can serve it with a slice of lemon if you want.
