Recipe by Elmotoo

This is so comforting & delicious! I forget where I found this originally & I probably altered it anyway. eta: I just remembered - this is my edited/altered/revised version of another Zaar recipe. I hope nobody is offended.

Made for Recipe Swap #12, January 2008. I have never had Gnocchi before, but had always wanted to try it. I'm glad I made this recipe for my first try at gnocchi. I loved the spinach, bacon and chickn in this dish. I added some minced garlic and some red pepper flakes and ended up with a very enjoyable meal. Thanks, Elmotoo.
