Add smoked bacon lardons to a frying pan and cook until crispy.

Add your cherry tomatoes and cook until they start to burst. Chop your garlic and add it to the pan. Stir and add your spinach and basil leaves.

Once they have wilted, mix everything together. Season with salt and pepper. Bubble down until the sauce is thick and rich.

Step 4.

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

Step 5.

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

Pour the gnocchi into a baking dish and flatten it out. Tear two balls of mozzarella over the top. Cover the whole dish with grated Parmesan, season with pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.
