This is a dish my entire family loves. Its simple to make, and every one can help. From chopping garlic, to stirring the amazing sauce as it simmers. The best part is… this is so easy to make!


1) Can diced tomatoes (seasoned with basil and garlic if you can get it)
2) 1/4 Cup minced garlic
3) 1/2 Cup dried cherries
4) 2 canned chili peppers in Adobo sauce (chopped very fine) (Often found in the Mexican cooking isle)
5) 1 Cup Water
6) 3 Tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar

2 Packages of pre-made Gnocchi.
