    From May 2007 issue of Fine Cooking Magazine. Hubby and I have never tried gnocchi and found the prep for this recipe to be very simple and the flavors excellent.

    1. 1
      Bring a large saucepan of salted water to boil.
    2. 2
      Cook the gnocchi according to package directions.
    3. 3
      Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking water and drain.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crispy on both sides, about 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels and set aside. Pour off any fat from the skillet.
    6. 6
      In the same skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium-high heat.
    7. 7
      Add the onions and cook until they begin to brown, 3 to 5 minutes.
    8. 8
      Reduce the heat to medium and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are limp and golden brown, 10 more minutes.
    9. 9
      Stir in the peas and thyme, season with salt and pepper to taste, and transfer to a small bowl.
    10. 10
      Wipe the skillet clean with a paper towel, and heat the remaining 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat.
    11. 11
      Add the gnocchi and cook, tossing occasionally, until they are lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
    12. 12
      Gently stir in the onion mixture, bacon, and Parmigiano, along with enough of the reserved cooking water to moisten and coat the gnocchi, about 4 tablespoons.
    13. 13
      Serve immediately, sprinkled with additional Parmigiano.

      Very easy to make with simple ingredients that I always have on hand. Struggled slightly with the gnocchi sticking to the pan but just added a bit more oil to fix this. I didn't have any thyme so used some beautiful basil that I had growing in my garden. Made a great Sunday evening dinner, thank you.

      Very nice dish. The only thing I did different was, I used the dried version of gnocchi instead of frozen. Thanks for posting the recipe and photo in the Photo Forum, otherwise I might not have tried it, which would have been a shame. :)
