This was great and it turns out beautiful! worthy of dinner guests. My husband loved it and all the pretty colors. I used trader joes gnocchi, sauteed the garlic with some crushed red pepper flakes for flavor boost, added salt and pepper, and used chicken stock instead of water for more flavor, only used about 1/4 cup though. I also used a can of regular tomatoes and added italian seasoning and fresh basil. pretty much followed the recipe to a T and it was perfect!
