but if I had a choice I’d opt for pasta in this kind of dish, it lacked a certain bite..

On Wednesday evening I decided to use the other half of the gnocchi..
This time I did it like the recipes say and blanched the gnocchi before putting it in a creamy, spinach and bacon sauce.

Creamy ham and spinach gnocchi:

I made some garlic bread to go with it, I had a couple of homemade rolls in the freezer for that reason.

I enjoyed it, it was nice and garlicky too, but if I had a choice I’d opt for pasta in this kind of dish, it lacked a certain bite..

I might try it in a tomato based sauce next time, just to see if it makes any difference and without the bacon, a nice vegetarian meal..
