Bacon Mushroom Gnocchi Recipe

Gnocchi is such a simple yet delicious dish. Something we make when we’re stuck for time and want something tasty and filling. This bacon mushroom gnocchi recipe uses basic ingredients and takes only 10 minutes to prepare. Perfect for nights where we finish work late or for when we don’t have much time to prepare lunch or dinner. In the recipe below, I’ve used truffle oil to add a bit of a kick. This dish will go well without the truffle oil also but I’d recommend adding it if you have it.

We buy the gnocchi from our local Aldi store, cheap and cheerful and takes only 5 minutes to cook in boiling water. I’ve yet to try make gnocchi from scratch but it’s something that I’m going to have to try sometime.
