Heat the oil in a large saucepan over a high heat and squeeze the sausage meat out of its skins and into the pan in bite-sized pieces. Add the onion, celery and carrot, and cook for 3-4 mins until golden in places. Add the herbs, crushed chillies, balsamic vinegar, tomatoes, tomato purée and wine; stir well. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 8 mins, stirring occasionally, until reduced and the sauce is thick; season well.
Meanwhile, cook the gnocchi to pack instructions. Drain well, then stir into the sausage ragu. Serve garnished with rocket; scatter with grated Parmesan and drizzle with a little extra olive oil, if you like.
