This meal is great for one of those nights when you pop into the supermarket desperately wanting a quick dinner without having something unhealthy! It’s just a few items which you can quickly grab, and it takes under 10 minutes to cook! (Gnocchi will be with the fresh pasta, usually around the ready meals!)

I used the Tesco gnocchi which is 2 syns per 100g, and Tesco pesto which is 2.5 syns per tbsp.

Pine-nuts are also lovely fried in with the bacon- you can use these as Healthy extra B. Also lovely with parmesan on top if you haven't used your healthy extra A.
