Buttery bacon & basil gnocchi

Sometimes you just gotta eat bacon in a buttery form. I’m sure there are scientific studies out there that link bacon directly to happiness. Gnocchi is quick and easy to cook especially on a school night. 

  • One packet of gnocchi
  • Chopped up garlic clove
  • A few rashers of bacon
  • Chopped up mushrooms
  • Sweet tomatoes (I used Sugardrop)
  • Lots of basil leaves
  • Olive oil 
  • Parmasan 

Cook off the bacon , mushrooms and tomatoes in a little oil. Add the chopped garlic until cooked (careful not to burn it!). Boil the gnocchi in salted water until it starts to float to the top of the pan and drain. Mix the gnocchi together with the cooked off ingredients then stir some basil, oil and Parmesan. Season and eat! Feel free to add a good knob of butter to make it extra tasty. By god I love gnocchi. Gnocchi is easy to make as well, I think I’ll leave that for a weekend activity….
