Sage, Bacon & Parmesan Gnocchi

When Love comes Gnocchi at your door

Oh it's a Friday after work and I'm knackered, and I'm at home cooking dinner for me and Lola. Not straight home exactly, we did manage to polish off a bottle of wine in town. For a Friday that counts as pretty much straight home.

This dish is super quick and very delicious, and a little bit naughty as befits a Friday. I've also been looking for recipes that involve sage to use some of the plant in the garden, it's gone bonkers.

1 packet of gnocchi (will make from scratch one day, but today is not that day)
3 rashers of bacon

10-12 fresh sage leaves - sliced finely

Freshly grated
Grated Cheddar

Chop up bacon and fry until approaching crispy, add in the sage and then proceed to crispy. Cook the gnocchi in plenty of salted boiling water - for two minutes or till the little gnocchi float tot the top. Drain, mix in the bacon, sage and cheese into the gnocchi,
until the cheese melts. Sprinkle over a little more Parmesan to serve and some black pepper.

Transfer to heated bowls and serve
