  • Spray a deep based pan with cooking oil and spray saute the diced onion and garlic until tender.
  • Now add the lean chopped bacon and mushrooms fry for another 5 minutes, regularly stirring.
  • Then add all the herbs and spices and fry for a further 5 minutes, followed by the tomatoes or passata, balsamic vinegar, puree and give it a good stir.
  • Now add 200ml of water and gnocchi if cooking in the same pan. Or 100ml of water and cook and drain the gnocchi separately. Either way, simmer the sauce for 20 minutes with the lid on. But return to stir occasionally so it doesn't stick on the bottom.
  • Season to taste, serve with grated cheese and a sprinkle of fresh parsley.
