GNOCCHI WITH COTTAGE CHEESE & BACON
Primary category: Entrees
Ingredients2-lb bag of frozen gnocchi
1 lb cottage cheese
1 lb bacon
While gnocchi is cooking, fry the pound of bacon. Drain the bacon on paper towels and pat to remove excess grease. Cut or break (depending on how crispy you like your bacon) the bacon into 1' pieces.
Drain the gnocchi and put back into boiling pot. Add cottage cheese and mix well. Add bacon pieces last to maintain crispness. Salt and pepper to taste.
Leftovers can be heated in a pan with a little butter.
The cottage cheese melts and the flavor is great. This is a recipe given to my mother by her brother-in-law. The original recipe called for homemade haluski but my Italian mother changed it to gnocchi
