A light and fresh ricotta gnocchi served with blistered corn, peppers and bacon. 



  1. Prepare the vegetables

    Carefully cut the corn off the ears of corn. Dice the bell pepper into squares. 

  2. Prepare the bacon

    In a cool dry pan add the slices of cut bacon. Cook on medium until crispy then add the corn and peppers. Turn the heat to medium high and cook for 5 minutes, mixing occasionally to avoid the burning.

    Add the gnocchi to a simmering pot of well salted water. Boil for 3 minutes fresh or 8 minutes frozen. 

  4. Combine the gnocchi and bacon

    Strain and add the gnocchi to the bacon, corn and pepper sauce. Toss to combine and cook for a minute.
