Lj's Mini Gnocchi Bolognaise Bake

This has been my Mini Me's fave dish for years! Haven't made it in awhile and
 I can't even remember where I got the idea to create it. 



Ingredients:

500g Beef Heart Smart Mince
1 Large Onion 
2 Cloves of freshly crushed Garlic
2 Tins of Crushed Tomatoes
2 heaped old school Tablespoons of Tomato Paste 
250ml of a nice Sauc Blanc 
Fresh herbs of choice, I've used Basil, Oregano and Parsley from my garden
500g of Mini Potato Gnocchi
Grated tasty cheese and extra sharp Parmesan for the topping
Cracked pepper and sea salt to season

What to do:

Heat a large no stick pan and brown the onions and garlic in a splash of extra Virgin Olive Oil. Add the mince and brown while stirring. Add the tinned tomatoes, tomato paste and wine. Simmer until the mince is cooked and add the herbs. 
Meanwhile bring a saucepan of water to the boil and season with cracked sea salt. When the water is boiling add the Gnocchi and cook until it floats. This only takes a few minutes. Drain and rinse with hot water. Add to the Bolognaise and then into a baking dish. Top with some grated cheese and Parmesan and bake until the cheese is golden.
