SPICY SKILLET GNOCCHI
01 August 2018
Gnocchi should carry the crown for being an everyday favourite - but for no good reason it doesn't appear high on the regular recipe repertoire. In our drive to make yummy, foodie, creative dishes accesible to all - here is an easy one that is sure to creep onto the "dinner party winner" list this winter!
-WHAT YOU WILL NEED-
500g gnocchi (store bought is fine for the feinter hearted)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
½ cup bacon bits
1 onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. garlic
2 tsp. oregano
1 ½ cups crushed tomato
1 Tbsp. Cape Herb & Spice Ghost Chilli Seasoning (add more or less, dependent on taste)
¼ cup parmesan cheese
1 cup mozzarella cheese
Fresh basil leaves
-HOW IT'S DONE-
Bring a pot of water to the boil with a little salt then pour the gnocchi into the water and cook until the it starts to float (approximately 5 minutes). Strain the gnocchi and set aside. Meanwhile, add olive oil to a pan over a medium heat and fry the bacon slightly before adding the chopped onion to the pan. Sauté - then add the garlic, oregano, crushed tomato and Cape Herb & Spice Ghost Chilli Seasoning to the mixture and cook for at least 5 minutes. Gently stir in the cooked gnocchi and arrange evenly around the pan. Top with both cheeses and place under the grill for 5-10 minutes or until the cheese starts to bubble slightly.
Serve with fragrant fresh basil leaves.
