So let’s say that you are here after reading the homemade gnocchi recipe, the components that you have to take into account when it comes to cooking gnocchi is that it cooks very fast.

bacon and spinach gnocchi
You will need:
  1. Bacon – cubed or strips or whatever.
  2. Spinach – fresh, frozen or whatever
  3. Butter
  4. gnocchi – homemade or not
How to get it done:
  1. Depending on the type of spinach that you have all you have to do is sear the spinach in a hot pan with just a tiny bit of oil so it does not stick. It will release a lot of liquid and when those liquids are done, marinate them with salt and pepper. Put it aside and clean the pan
  2. Throw in the cubed bacon in the pan with no oil. Cook them till crispy and retain the bacon fat.
  3. In a big pot of salted boiling water throw in the gnocchi. If they are homemade, cook them till they float. If they are store-bought, cook them based on the directions on the packaging. Drain them after they are cooked
  4. Add a tablespoon of butter in the bacon fat. After it melts, in this order, add the gnocchi and mix it up.
  5. Add the bacon and spinach and mix everything together while turning off the heat.
  6. Everything is ready!
