Gnocchi is quite rich, so we’ve included lots of veggies, and haven’t loaded up your plate with too much gnocchi, as it’s pretty filling! When our sales team tested this recipe, it was their absolute favourite dish. Delicious creamy gnocchi with a zingy salad is a winning combination (according to them), so we hope you enjoy it just as much!

Due to the conflict in Ukraine, it has been necessary to substitute sunflower oil with rapeseed oil in some products without a label change. The FSA have advised that allergic reactions to rapeseed oil are rare.

Cut the spring onion in half lengthways, remove the root, then thinly slice. Roughly chop the parsley and cut the cherry tomatoes in half. Cut the cucumber in half lengthways, then chop it into small cubes (about ½cm in size). Chop the bacon into roughly 1cm wide pieces. Tip: You can do this using scissors.
Put a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium heat and add the gnocchi. Fry for 8-9 mins, stirring occasionally, until crispy around the edges and slightly browned. Once cooked, take the pan off the heat.
While your gnocchi is cooking, get started with your sauce! Put a large frying pan on medium-high heat and add your bacon. Fry for 5-6 mins or until browned and slightly crispy, then remove from the pan with a slotted spoon (try to leave most of the oil in the pan).
Reduce the heat to medium, add your spring onion and tomatoes along with a good grind of pepper. Cook for 3-4 mins then add the tomato purée and cook for another minute. Throw in the stock pot with the water (the amount specified in the ingredient list above) and stir to dissolve. Bubble away for 2 mins before stirring through the baby spinach (until it wilts), then add the mascarpone and bacon to the pan and mix everything together.
Add your gnocchi to your sauce along with three-quarters of your parsley and gently stir to combine.
Squeeze the juice from the lime into a large bowl and add the honey and the olive oil (the amount specified in the ingredient list). Mix together with a fork. Put the baby leaf salad in the bowl along with your cucumber and give it a toss around so everything gets a good coating.
Serve your gnocchi with your salad on the side. Sprinkle over the grated hard Italian cheese, your remaining parsley and devour!
