  1. Preheat the oven to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a shallow, flameproof casserole dish and fry the onion over a medium heat for 8 mins. Stir in the garlic, fry for 30 secs, then add the tomato purée, chopped tomatoes and 200ml water. Bubble for 10 mins or until thickened and reduced.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the gnocchi to the pack instructions. Drain, reserving 100ml cooking water.
  3. Fold the feta, tuna, spinach, gnocchi and most of the reserved cooking water through the tomato sauce; season with black pepper. Add more cooking water to loosen if needed: the gnocchi will absorb some while baking. Scatter the bread over the dish followed by the cheese. Drizzle over 1 tbsp olive oil, then bake for 15-20 mins until crispy, golden and bubbling.
