Observations:

How to store gnocchi alla sorrentina?
We advise you to eat the gnocchi alla sorrentina as soon as they are ready, but you can store them in the refrigerator (in an airtight container) for 24 hours. Before eating them, reheat them in a pan with a lid, adding a little hot water to dilute the sauce.

How to prepare the traditional recipe for gnocchi alla sorrentina (oven baked)?
Once the gnocchi are cooked, toss them in the tomato sauce. Then transfer everything to an ovenproof dish and add the cubed mozzarella, then bake for 7/8 minutes at 410°F (210°C).

What should I do to prevent the mozzarella from releasing too much water?
Remove it from the refrigerator well in advance and let it drain into a bowl.

Of course. The important thing is that the potatoes are thoroughly cooked before using them in the dough.
