Loaded Baked Gnocchi

DSC_0003

Everybody knows I love gnocchi.  This year for Valentine’s Day, my boyfriend and I decided to cook the same meal and enjoy it together over Skype (curse you, 2000 miles).  Confession time, I lost the recipe link he sent me 3 hours before I was supposed to make the darn thing.  All that I could remember was bacon, gnocchi, and cheese.  I sort of winged this, but it turned out to be super yummy.  So I thought I’d share this super easy recipe with you guys.

Ingredients
– 1 package gnocchi
– 3 strips bacon
– 2 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 14-oz can diced tomatoes, drained
– 1 cup chopped broccoli
– 1/3 cup corn kernels
– 1 cup milk
– 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
– 2 cups mozzarella cheese
– 1 green onion stalk, chopped

Method
1. Preheat oven to 375F.  In a pot, bring water to a boil.  Drop gnocchi into the boiling water.  Gnocchi will float when done, about 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.
2. In a skillet, cook the bacon until crisp.  Remove the bacon (to chop) and reserve 1 tbs of bacon grease in the skillet.  Cook the garlic until golden brown.  Add the diced tomatoes, broccoli, and corn.  Cook for 1 minute.
3. Add the milk and greek yogurt until a sauce forms.  (If it is too runny, you can add corn starch or 1 tbs of flour to thicken).
4. Add the cooked gnocchi and toss with the sauce.  Add 1 cup of the cheese to coat.
5. Pour the gnocchi into an oven-safe dish.  Top with the remaining cheese, green onions, and bacon.
6. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbling and golden brown.
