garlic love

Pin It Oh dear, what a bad blogger I am. The last week was a super busy one with a weekend trip to Bristol for the hubby's 3 man show and the hot weather meant that I didn't spend much of my spare time at home.

I rustled up this quick dinner tonight, it is a pretty rich treat so if you would prefer it with a little less oomph perhaps serve with regular pasta rather than gnocci.

Serves 2
You will need:

  • A pack of gnocchi, (I recommend Jamie Oliver's fresh gnocchi)
  • An inch square piece of smoked pancetta finely chopped (you could just use 2/3 slices of sliced pancetta and finely slice
  • 6/7 slices of hungarian spicy sausage or chorizo, finely sliced
  • 5 or so cloves of garlic (I am a huge garlic fiend so if you're not as big a fan, use less)
  • 150ml or so of creme fraiche
  • Parmesan for grating

Right, heat you frying pan on a medium heat with a little oil. When ready add your pancetta and sausage and cook for a few minutes. The sausage should release a lovely orange oil. Peel and crush your garlic and add to the frying pan. Cook for 5 minutes or so, be careful not to burn it. Turn the heat down a little and add your creme fraiche. Give it all a good stir, taste and then season. Leave on the low heat.

Get a saucepan of salted water on the boil and add your gnocchi. The one I use only takes 2 minutes to cook. Drain and then add to your frying pan of saucy goodness. Give it all a good stir and serve. Grate some parmesan on top.

Easy peasy.... one work of advice, probably best not to eat before a date.
