Gnocchi with bacon and Pecorino Romano

Maybe the summer is over for good here in the Netherlands – and probably to most of where you are – but our desire for new and exciting recipes is never over! This week I give you one of the easiest recipes EVER. And this time I really really mean it! You have to try this on a sunny day (if possible :P) with some white wine on the side. Sit back and relax before you begin, enjoy some time for yourself and let the whole procedure of cooking take you over, like a real Italian!

Serves up to 4 people, Time needed: 15 min

75 gr smoked bacon
3-4 tomatoes cut in blocks
500 gr gnocchi di patate (De Cecco Gnocchi di Patate)
125 gr arugula salad
75 gr Pecorino Romano cheese
fresh basil leaves
ground pepper

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

Heat up a frying pan without any oil or butter and bake the bacon till crispy for about 5 min. Bake from the other side too. Take out of the pan and let it take out the excess fat on a plate with kitchen paper.

Cook the tomatoes in the leftover fat in the pan in medium heat for about 6 min.

In the meantime cook the gnocchi according to package instructions. Set up a plate and serve the gnocchi with the bacon, add some arugula salad, the tomatoes and peel small pieces of authentic Pecorino Romano cheese! Don’t forget the fresh basil leaves! Some fresh ground black pepper and you are done!

Bon Appétit!
