INGREDIENTS

DIRECTIONS

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add gnocchi and cook according to the package instructions. Remember, gnocchi will float to the surface when finished cooking. Drain and set aside.
  2. Melt butter in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Add pancetta and cook, stirring occasionally, until the fat renders and pancetta begins to brown, about 8 minutes.
  3. Add celery, onion and garlic to the pot. Cook, stirring often, until onion is translucent, about 10 minutes. Add clam juice, thyme and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk cornstarch and water together in a small bowl to form a slurry paste. Stir into the chowder base and bring to a boil to thicken.
  5. Discard bay leaf. Stir in clams, cream and gnocchi, and simmer for 5 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve.
