“Go through a potato press or mash in a large bowl,” Morgan wrote on Instagram.

“Add half the flour to a work surface, cover with the potato, then the rest of the flour.”

Using his hands, he worked the ingredients together to form a dough, then divided the gnocchi into four equal potions and rolled them into long “trunks” 2cm in diameter.

The dough was then cut into 2cm pieces to form the gnocchi shape, which were then gently cooked in a pan of boiling water.

The gnocchi was then fried ‘quickly and diligently’ in a hot pan with olive oil.

To make the sauce, he chopped the shallots, chopped the garlic and bacon into small pieces.

In a pan over medium heat, he added oil and cooked the bacon until ‘crispy’, then added the shallots and garlic to cook for a further two minutes.

The delicious cream was then poured into the hot pan and allowed to simmer, followed by the cooked gnocchi pieces.
