I did something awesome.
I, like, actually made the best thing I’ve ever eaten this weekend.
And as a bonus? I had other people eat it who agreed. WITNESSES.
So, this is a recipe I came across ages ago and knew I had to try. #1. Gnocchi is my favorite. #2. Sweet potatoes are my life. #3. Brown butter. #4. I ADDED PANCETTA.
Yes, you read that correctly. As if this dish wasn’t already divine, I decided to add some bacon. Everyone’s lives just got a lot better. I have a few justifications for this. One of them is: Just because. The other one is real and is: The salty, fatty pancetta contrasted the sweetness of the sweet potato and balsamic in an insane way. By insane I mean undoubtedly good.
I’m going to keep this brief because I feel like my words are only preventing you from making this and also eating this, so just leave right now and make this OK??
Here’s the recipe you need: http://www.aidamollenkamp.com/2012/11/sweet-potato-gnocchi-with-balsamic-sage-brown-butter/
*I bought a 1/4 lb of pancetta and browned it in a pan until it was crispy. I then added it to the dish when I tossed the gnocchi with the sauce. DO NOT FORGET ABOUT THE PANCETTA.
Best of luck. Now off you go…
