Recipe by Ms B.
READY IN: 30mins




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