ChiBacon Gnocchi

My husband Bruce named this particular dish this evening.

Bruce had never had gnocchi before, but I was fairly confident that it would be something he'd like, as long as it was introduced to him in a safe way, and combined with other things that he loves, such as chicken and bacon...and thus, ChiBacon Gnocchi was born.

I did throw in some broccoli in an attempt to make it a bit more of a rounded meal, and I have to say, it was delightful.  Bruce immediately deemed it a 10 out of 10.

ChiBacon Gnocchi


1 pkg gnocchi (17.6 oz)
2 c. frozen broccoli
2 c. cooked chicken (diced)
1/2 c. crumbled cooked bacon
1 - 15 ounce jar Alfredo sauce
1/2 c. Monterey Jack cheese
1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese


Preheat oven to 400.

Cook the gnocchi according to the package directions and drain.

Stir together the gnocchi, broccoli, chicken, bacon, Monterey Jack cheese, and Alfredo sauce. Spoon into a casserole dish.

Top with mozzarella cheese and bake for 20-22 minutes. Turn oven to broil and heat for 2-3 minutes or until the cheese starts to brown.
