Directions:
In a large pot, heat 2 tsp. of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, 30 seconds to one minute. Add the tomatoes and Italian seasoning; season with salt and pepper. Simmer; stirring occasionally, 12 to 14 minutes, or until the liquid is thickened and slightly reduced in volume.

Cook gnocchi in a pot of boiling water for 2-3 minutes, or until the gnocchi float to the top of the pot. Drain thoroughly.

To the pot of tomato sauce, add the cooked gnocchi, 3/4 of the mozzarella cheese, and half the basil (tearing just before adding); season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium-high, stirring occasionally 1 to 2 minutes, or until well combined and heated through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a serving dish and top with the remaining mozzarella cheese. Garnish with the remaining basil (tearing just before adding).
