BLT Gnocchi- Yum!

 

When I wake up hungry, I create my best recipes. I’m not sure why. But that’s how it is.

 

Gnocchi is always a good idea. And its fast, usually a hearty meal in less than 20 minutes. In this case, it was 10 minutes, start to finish…. even with photos and a few bites to make sure it’s perfect.

 

BLT Gnocchi

1 lb. potato gnocchi, prepared

1/2 cup fresh basil leaves

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup chicken broth

2 tbsp. Garden Gourmet basil paste

1/2 cup cooked bacon pieces

1 large tomato diced

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

 

I start by browning my Gnocchi in some butter until at least one side is crispy.

 

 

Then I added large basil leaves. Make them crispy too… only takes a minute or so. Remove the basil and cool on a paper towel.

 

 

Have you ever had crispy basil? Oh, it’s so good.

 

 

Then add the chicken broth, basil paste, and simmer for 1 minute. Then add the heavy cream and Parmesan.

 

Then assemble with your diced tomato and bacon. Add them all together and serve with more Parmesan if desired. YUMMO.

Happy Dinnertime!!
