Bacon Parmesan Gnocchi

This month, I am cooking up some "fast food" recipes and showing that making fresh food doesn't have to take loads of time spent in the kitchen, nor does it mean you having to hop in the car and visit the neighborhood drive-thru window.

Bacon Parmesan Gnocchi

Ingredients:
  1. 12 oz Vince and Sons Gnocchi
  2. 6-8 slices Smoking Goose Applewood Smoked Bacon, diced into 1 inch pieces
  3. 1 small onion, diced
  4. 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  5. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  6. Fresh cracked pepper
  7. 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  8. 3 tablespoons, roughly chopped fresh parsley

Instructions:
  • Heat salted water in a pot until boiling. Add the gnocchi and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the gnocchi’s start to boil to the top. Take the gnocchi out of the water and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, cook the diced bacon until crispy. Take out of the skillet and set aside on a paper towel.
  • Take the skillet with the bacon fat and discard the fat, leaving about 1 tablespoon left in the skillet. Heat the skillet to medium heat and add the garlic and onions. Saute until tender.
