Gnocchi With Bacon & Spinach

This is the type of recipe that you make someone that you want to impress, like the in-laws or some work friends. It’s delicious, presents beautifully, but most importantly- it’s super quick and easy. In this recipe I’m using pre-made or store bought gnocchi, but if you’d like a recipe on how to make your own, I can give you just that. Let me know in the comments below.


4 slices thick cut bacon, chopped

1 14oz can chopped tomatoes

1 tsp white sugar

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar

1 pound gnocchi

4 oz baby spinach (about 5 cups)

Parmesan cheese, grated

  1. Cook bacon in a large deep skillet over medium high heat until done to your liking. Add tomatoes, sugar, pepper, and vinegar and saute for about five minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add gnocchi. Cook according to package directions (usually when they float to the top).
  3. Add spinach to gnocchi and cook for 30 seconds until wilted. Drain gnocchi and spinach mixture and add to sauce.
  4. Gently toss with tongs until combined. Divide among plates and top with Parmesan.
  5. Enjoy hot!
