- 2 cups fresh baby spinach
- 2 teaspoons Frontier Salt-Free Southwest Chipotle Seasoning

1. Place bacon in a large saucepan. Turn heat to medium and cook until all pieces are crispy on both sides. Remove bacon and set on a paper towel. Crumble bacon when cooled.

3. Cook gnocchi according to package directions.
4. Pour cream sauce over cooked gnocchi and sprinkle with bacon crumbles.
