Cream and Bacon Gnocchi

This recipe is from the lovely and delightful Angela. I was a little unsure about it, especially when I plopped the gluggy from-a-packet gnocchi into the sauce, but I suppose a certain glugginess is in the nature of gnocchi, and it went well with the creaminess of the sauce. It’s a very simple and tasty recipe – definitely in the comfort food category.

olive oil
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 onion, diced
6 rashers bacon, diced
3 tablespoons sundried tomato pesto
200ml light cream
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
500g gnocchi

Heat some oil in a large frying pan, and fry the garlic, onion and bacon until golden. Add the pesto, cream and parmesan cheese, and simmer for a few minutes, until it reduces a little.

Cook the gnocchi in boiling salted water, following the instructions on the packet, until just tender. Drain, and pour the gnocchi into the frying pan with the sance, and stir until coated. Serve immediately.
