Bacon Gnocchi

My gnocchi love just doesn’t end. But that doesn’t matter, after all, gnocchi can be combined with almost anything. For a salty balance this time I threw the gnocchi together with crispy fried bacon in a pan and mixed it with a garlic sauce that lives up to its name. Both complement each other wonderfully and the result was this delicious dish for crispy bacon gnocchi in garlic sauce.

My bacon gnocchi are true soul food. They are soothing, creamy and tasty and have it all if you take a closer look at the nutritional values. But whatever! From time to time that is also allowed.
