Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease an oven-proof dish or a baking tray with some olive oil.
In a bowl toss together the crushed pepper and garlic with the tomato halves, sugar and salt. Place the tomatoes in the dish and caramelize in the oven for approx. 15-20 minutes. Keep an eye on them so that they do not burn.
Once ready take out and sprinkle with the balsam vinegar. Immediately mix with the cooked gnocchi. Add the mozzarella and basil leaves, toss gently and serve in warm plates.
Enjoy with a nice chilled white wine.

Meeta – that’s my name given to me by my dad! I was born back in the summer of 1972, one beautiful day in Bombay, India. I studied Hotel Management, specializing in Marketing and Guest Relations. I trained in one of the finest luxury hotels of this world in Doha, Qatar. That is when a tiny spark for food was ignited in my soul.
I now have settled down in Germany, with my two men, Tom my husband and Soeren my adorable son.
Hotels are not a part of my life in Germany. After graduating I came to Germany and worked in an advertising firm, an architecture and design firm and a couple of software firms. Don’t ask how that came about – it just happened!
Now I am in Weimar and for the first time in my life I feel grounded at having found a great place to lay my hat. But my travelling feet continue to itch! Let’s see where life takes me.
I love photography, always have, but it was with the start of this blog that I discovered the world of Foodography. Since then the passion for photography I developed has taken a complete new angle and opened so many exciting doors. I try to capture shots that speak a thousand words, that makes one feel as if they were a part of the scene and experience the photo with their senses.
