Forgive the pun, I just couldn’t help myself! So, Dad and I were left alone this weekend, and instead of going for the easy option of takeaways, we opted for a really nice meal of gnocchi in a carbonara sauce. We didn’t make the gnocchi, they were bought fresh,. Our main addition to the sauce was button mushrooms – they really added a nice texture to the dish, which would’ve been quite repetitive otherwise!
Here’s another picture, this time with the bottle of wine that didn’t last long!
The only thing that was missing was shaved Parmesan on top, and maybe we could have added some lemon zest to the gnocchi. That would have been lovely. Ho hum, I guess we’ll just have to eat it again!
