Method

  1. Step 1

    Place the peas and bicarbonate of soda in a medium heatproof bowl. Pour over enough boiling water to cover. Set aside for 2 mins or until peas are heated through. Drain well. Return the peas to the bowl and use a fork to coarsely mash.
  2. Step 2

    Heat butter and oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and ham. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 mins or until the ham is light golden.
  3. Step 3

    Meanwhile, cook the gnocchi in a large saucepan of boiling water following packet directions. Drain, reserving 1 cup (250ml) cooking liquid.
  4. Step 4

    Add the peas, reserved cooking liquid and gnocchi to the ham mixture in the pan. Increase heat to high and bring to the boil. Cook, stirring, for 1-2 mins or until sauce reduces slightly. Season. Divide among serving bowls. Drizzle with the extra oil. Sprinkle with parsley and parmesan.
