Gnocchi With Bacon, Peas And Sun-Dried Tomatoes Recipe

There’s something so comforting about gnocchi. All you need is tasty pasta sauce or even a few spoonfuls of pesto, and you’ve got meal. Just leave out the bacon if you’d prefer a veggie version.

Serves: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes


 

Ingredients

  • 400g gnocchi
  • 130g bacon lardons or pancetta
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 80g frozen peas
  • 10-12 sun-dried tomatoes in oil, chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme, chopped
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 2 tbsp Parmesan, grated, plus extra

Instructions

  1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil and cook the gnocchi according to the package directions. Drain well, reserving around 120ml of the cooking water.
  2. In a large nonstick pan over a medium heat, cook the bacon for 5-6 minutes or until crispy on both sides. Transfer to a plate lined with kitchen paper and set aside.
  3. Add one tablespoon of oil to the bacon fat in the pan and cook the onions over a medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes until they begin to brown. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for another 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown.
  4. Stir in the peas, sun-dried tomatoes and thyme. Season with salt and pepper, then transfer to a bowl.
  5. Wipe the pan clean with kitchen paper and heat the remaining olive oil over a medium-high heat. Add the gnocchi and cook for 3-4 minutes, tossing occasionally, until golden brown.
  6. Gently stir in the onion mixture, bacon and Parmesan. Add enough of the reserved cooking water to loosen everything and coat the gnocchi, about four tablespoons. Divide between bowls and sprinkle with additional Parmesan. Serve immediately with a side salad.
