Gnocchi with Tomatoes & Watercress


* 2 ounces veggie bacon, chopped
* 3 cloves garlic, minced
* 2 large tomatoes, chopped
* 1/2 teaspoon sugar
* 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
* 2 teaspoons red-wine vinegar
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 1 pound gnocchi
* 4 ounces watercress,tough stems removed,coarsely chopped (6 cups packed)
* 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese


1. Put a large pan of water on to boil.
2. Cook pancetta in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until it begins to brown, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add tomatoes, sugar and crushed red pepper and cook, stirring, until the tomatoes are almost completely broken down, about 5 minutes. Stir in vinegar and salt. Remove from the heat.
3. Cook gnocchi in the boiling water until they float, 3 to 5 minutes or according to package directions. Place watercress in a colander and drain the gnocchi over the watercress, wilting it slightly. Add the gnocchi and watercress to the sauce in the pan; toss to combine. Serve immediately, with Parmesan.
