I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Bacon Tomato Gnocchi

Fluffy potato dumplings coated in tomato sauce with bacon, pepper and peas. My kind of comfort food!

500g shelf stable gnocchi
6 slices bacon, roughly chopped
1 1/2 - 2 cups tomato sauce
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 cup frozen peas, or peas and carrots
1 tsp dry oregano
black pepper to taste

Boil the gnocchi in a pot of water 2-3 minutes or until they float to the top, then drain.
In a large skillet cook the bacon for 3-4 minutes and remove to a plate. Also remove all but 2 tbsps of bacon fat from the pan. Add the red pepper and sauté 2-3 minutes, then add the gnocchi and brown 1-2 minutes per side. Add the garlic and stir 1 minute before adding the peas, black pepper, oregano and bacon.

Toss with your favourite tomato sauce and heat through. Then it's ready to serve!

Makes 3 servings
