Pork Tenderloin
with Fried Gnocchi



PORK AND GNOCCHI

Tender Pork Tenderloin with fried gnocchi is a deliciously filling dish to feed your family and friends. Pork is a very versatile meat and can be make many different ways. This Italian style recipe uses a little cream with gives the pork a rich flavor.

Combining the pork with sun dried tomatoes gives this dish an added touch. Sun dried tomatoes began in Italy as a way to store tomatoes during the winter. These tomatoes have an intense, concentrated flavor and can be used in a variety of Italian dishes.

Make your own sun dried tomatoes at home and store them for later use. Just take 5 pounds of Roma tomatoes cut in half, sprinkle with salt and place them on a rack in the oven on the lowest temperature. Cook for around six to twelve hours until the tomatoes are shriveled and dry. Store in a plastic bag or in a jar with olive oil. The tomatoes will last indefinitely.

I use sun dried tomatoes packed in olive oil for this Pork Tenderloin with fried gnocchi.
