Gnocchi, bacon, cheese and tomato bake
Got the idea for this from a Tesco recipe (originally gnocchi and courgette bake). It's quick and easy. Ingredients (serves 2 adults) Pack of fresh gnocchi 4 rashers bacon, cut into strips 1/2 onion, finely chopped Tomato passata Prepared green beans Goat's cheese Parmesan cheese Method Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Fry the bacon strips, and after a few minutes add in the onion. Once both are turning golden brown, turn off the heat and stir in some tomato passata. Don't use too much, just enough to make a small sauce. Warm the gnocchi for 2 mins in boiling water, then drain off and place into a casserole baking dish. Pour the tomato/bacon/onion mixture over. You should have enough sauce to coat the gnocchi, but you don't want them swimming in it. Add seasoning - I used basil and black pepper. Add some green beans then crumble in some goat's cheese, shaking parmesan over the top of the whole dish. I also added a last minute garnish of halved cherry tomatoes. Bake for 10 mins in the oven, until hot through. Serve with salad.
