Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces Cappello’s Gnocchi
  • 4 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon tapioca flour
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1. Cook the gnocchi according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.

2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon for 4-6 minutes, or until crisp.
