Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil and cook gnocchi according to packet directions. Meanwhile, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook for 5-6 min or until golden brown. Transfer to a plate and set aside.


Add garlic to the pan, cook for 30 sec. Stir in tomatoes, with their juice, and lightly crush tomatoes with the back of a spoon to burst. Simmer for 2 min. Season with pepper. Drain gnocchi.


Return half of the bacon to pan and add all the gnocchi. Cook, stirring, for 1 min or until hot. Remove from heat and stir through rocket. Serve topped with remaining bacon. Garnish with grated parmesan cheese and cracked black pepper.
