Bacony Gnocchi Bake

The most comforting dish you’ll ever eat.

NOTES:

Make sure the bacon is nice and crispy before adding tomatoes!

COOKING TIME (INCLUDES PREPARATION TIME): 50 MINUTES

INGREDIENTS:

  • Parmesan

  • Mozzarella

  • 900g Cherry Tomatoes

  • 200g Spinach

  • Basil

  • Garlic

  • 400g Smoked Bacon Lardons

  • 500g Gnocchi

METHOD:

  1. Add smoked bacon lardons to a frying pan and cook until crispy. Then add your cherry tomatoes.

  2. Cook until they start to burst, and then add 2 chopped cloves of garlic. Stir them in, and then add your spinach and basil leaves. Once they have wilted, mix everything together. Season with salt and pepper. Bubble down sauce until it is thick and rich.

  3. While the sauce is thickening, put your gnocchi into a bowl and cover with boiling water.

  4. Once the sauce has thickened remove from the heat. Drain gnocchi and stir it in to the sauce.

  5. Pour gnocchi in to a baking dish. Flatten it out, and then tear two balls of mozzarella over the top. Cover the whole dish with grated Parmesan, season with pepper and a drizzle of olive oil, and then place under the grill for 15 minutes or until the cheese is golden and bubbling.

  6. Enjoy!
