Finely chop the red onion and celery. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Drain and rinse the capers.
Heat a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the flaked almonds and toast, tossing, until golden, 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a generous drizzle of olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the gnocchi in a single layer and fry, tossing occasionally, until golden, 8-10 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.
TIP: If the gnocchi doesn't fit in a single layer, fry in batches.
Return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the onion, celery and capers and cook, stirring, until softened, 3-4 minutes. Add the garlic and dried oregano and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 2 minutes. Add the crushed & sieved tomatoes (see ingredients list), the water, brown sugar and vegetable stock. Simmer until thickened slightly, 2-3 minutes.
TIP: Capers have a strong flavour, feel free to leave them out if you're not a fan!
Stir the baby spinach leaves and red pesto through the sauce until the spinach has wilted, 2 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat and add the gnocchi. Gently toss to coat the gnocchi in the sauce. Season to taste with pepper.
Divide the Mediterranean tomato and oregano gnocchi between bowls. Crumble over the feta and top with the toasted almonds.
