  1. Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat, but do not let it smoke. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until the onion turns translucent (5 to 7 minutes). Add wine and cook until the liquid is mostly evaporated. Add tomato juice, tomato sauce, and basil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer for 30 minutes or until slightly thickened. Add salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm. Remove from heat.
  2. Add one teaspoon of salt to a large pot. Add half the gnocchi. When they reach the top of the pool (after approximately 2 minutes), continue cooking until they are tender, another 15 seconds. Transfer gnocchi using a slotted teaspoon to the pan with sauce. Repeat the process with the remaining gnocchi.
  3. Gently toss gnocchi when reheating on low heat. Serve with cheese shavings.
