Breakfast Shakshuka Gnocchi

 ½ lb bacon, chopped
 1 lb Colavita Gnocchi
 1 jar Colavita Pesto
 4 eggs
 1 jar Colavita Strained Tomatoes
 Fresh basil for garnish
 Grated parmesan cheese
 Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil
 Salt and pepper to taste

Bring six quarts of water to a rolling boil in a large pot over high heat.


Cook the gnocchi, stirring gently, until they rise to the surface – about 2 minutes. The gnocchi will float to the top of the water surface when they are cooked.


Using a slotted spoon, scoop the cooked gnocchi from the boiling water and place them in a bowl. Drizzle them with a little Colavita Extra Virgin Olive Oil so they don’t stick together.


In a large skillet on medium/high heat, add chopped bacon. Cook until crispy, stirring occasionally, about 8-10 minutes.


Add the Colavita Marinara sauce to the pan and stir to incorporate.


Bring the sauce to a simmer and then add the cooked gnocchi to the sauce. Stir to coat the gnocchi with the sauce.


With the back of a spoon, make 4 indentations in the sauce and gnocchi mixture.


Crack an egg into each indentation.


Turn the heat to a medium-low and place a lid on the skillet. Cook for about 10 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked to your liking. (we like ours a bit runny!)


Once the eggs are cooked, remove from the heat and spoon some Colavita Pesto Sauce around the cooked eggs.
