2Bake the sweet potato whole on a lined baking tray for 1 hour or until soft.
3To prepare the sauce add onion and garlic to a hot pan with olive oil and cook until soft, approx. 5 minutes.
4Roughly grate the tomatoes to remove the bulk of the skin; then add the grated flesh (including the liquid!) to the pan, and cook for 15–20 minutes or until thick. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
5Allow the sweet potatoes to cool enough to handle. Slice the potatoes lengthways and scoop out the flesh into a bowl.
6Add thyme, nutmeg and salt to the potato. Gradually add the flour using your hands to bring it together. The flour quantity may need to be adjusted depending on the amount of sweet potato you've got.
7Dust a clean work surface with flour. Roll into a long cylinder, cut into 1.5–2cm pieces. Place on a tray until ready to cook.
8Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the gnocchi and cook for 5 minutes or until they float to the top.
9Add olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the cooked gnocchi and fry for 3–5 minutes or until they begin to go crispy on the outside.
10Add the cooked tomato sauce, with a splash of pasta water too if the sauce is too thick.
11Season with salt and pepper. Top with lemon zest, chives, parsley and a drizzle of olive oil, and enjoy!
