  • Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and crushed red pepper and cook until softened, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and salt and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to maintain the simmer and cook, stirring often, until thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in butter and basil.

  • Meanwhile, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add gnocchi and cook, stirring often, until plumped and starting to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the gnocchi to the tomato sauce and stir until coated. Serve with Parmesan, if desired.
