Gnocchi with Bacon and Spinach Pesto
Gnocchi with Bacon and Spinach Pesto



  • 15g fresh basil
  • 30g baby spinach
  • 1 tbsp freshly grated parmesan
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juice only
  • 140g bacon, cut into small pieces
  • 500g pack of gnocchi
  • Sea salt and black pepper
  • Kick this delicious recipe off by making a quick pesto. Chuck the basil, spinach, parmesan, salt, and half the oil into your food processor. Blend, and add more oil slowly until smoothness is achieved. Season with salt and lemon juice.
  • Cook the bacon in a pan until crispy. Remove, and drain on kitchen paper. While the bacon is crisping up, cook the gnocchi in salted water according to pack instructions. Drain, then return to the pan. Stir in the bacon and pesto, and serve piping hot.
