2 Packs of Gnocchi (17.5 oz each)

Boil generously salted water in a large pot for gnocchi.
Add olive oil and butter to a pan and heat on medium-low.
Add diced onions and garlic. Cook down until onions are tender.
Add dried basil, diced oregano, and tomato paste. Mix and break down tomato paste with a spatula.
Add in tomato puree, cream, and parmesan cheese. mix well and let simmer. Frequently mix until a smooth sauce is formed.
When the sauce is just about ready, add gnocchi to the boiling water. Remember, it cooks SO fast. It usually takes 2-3 minutes. Once they float to the top, remove them and add them to the sauce.
