This sauce is packed full of flavor from thanks to the fresh herbs. Optionally, you can add some veggies into this simple sauce if you like. I ended up adding a bit of zucchini because that's my favorite veggie with pasta. You can use store bought or home made gnocchi for this dish but I highly recommend using fresh herbs over the dried ones.
Bring out the flavors from the herbs in some oil.
Mix in the sauce and cheese.
