  1. Preheat your oven to 160˚c.

  3. Heat the olive oil in an oven proof pot over a medium high heat. When hot, carefully add the lamb and the onions and cook on the hob for 15 - 20 minutes, turning occasionally to make sure everything caramelises evenly.
  4. Add the garlic after 15 minutes or so , then add the balsamic vinegar , water and the stock cube. Bring to a simmer, cover & put in the oven for 1 hour.
  5. Cook the gnocchi according to packet instructions. Warm some butter in a large frying over a medium heat & add the herbs. Drain the gnocchi & add to the warmed butter.
  6. Season & serve with the lamb ragu on top. Finish each portion with lots of grated parmesan.
