Burnt Butter & Sage Gnocchi with Bacon.

Burnt Butter & Sage Gnocchi with Bacon. 

The first time I made this recipe, I made the gnocchi from scratch, not overly ambitious… Gnocchi isn’t rocket science but screw it up and you’ll know it! I love Gnocchi but I also like my free time, so save yourself the time and head to any decent supermarche and pick up a good quality packet gnocchi. If you can swing a visit to a local deli or speciality grocer then it’s worth the trip! But then again, convenience is the name of the game!
