I think Gnocchi is seriously underrated. No different than making pasta and great in a casserole like this. Over the years I’ve made tons of casseroles and bakes and was looking for something a little different to make. As with most of my recipes, this one is easy to make and will easily serve 4 to 6 hungry people. How can you go wrong with Chicken, Bacon and Cheese?

If you want to make this recipe even easier, use store bought Alfredo Sauce. Won’t be as good as this one but save you time if you are in a crunch.

How to Make this Recipe

1
Done

Make the Alfredo Sauce

In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the cream cheese, garlic, milk and heavy cream. Whisk the ingredients until smooth. Bring the mixture to a simmer as you continue to whisk. Turn off heat, and whisk in the Parmesan cheese. Add a tablespoon of the Alfredo to the beaten eggs and whisk vigorously. Now add the eggs to the saucepan whisking vigorously the entire time so that the eggs do not scramble.  Set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and spray a large baking dish with non-stick spray.  Set aside.
