  1. To make your meatballs combine your pork mince, beef, dried fennels, parsley, black pepper, salt, bread crumbs, milk. Roll into small meatballs and place on a plate. Heat a large skillet over medium and add olive oil. Pan fry your meatballs until crisp. Remove meatballs from the pan once crisp and golden brown.
  2. Add your chopped garlic and chilli; saute until the garlic is fragrant, pour in your plum tomatoes and 100ml of water, season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and add your meatballs back into the pan.
  3. Drop-in your gnocchi and turn off the heat. Place sliced mozzarella and a grating of parmesan on top. Bake in a preheated oven for 15 mins until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown.
  4. While your gnocchi bakes, make your pesto, blitz basil, pine nuts, olive oil,  garlic, parmesan, salt and pepper.
  5. Once your gnocchi has baked, drizzle your pesto on top and serve.
