Gorgonzola Gnocchi

Dieters beware! This is not the recipe for you. Non-dieting, stinky cheese-loving foodies listen up!

The days are getting shorter and colder - causing me to stop running and start eating warm, rich and comforting "Winter Meals." A bad combo, but oh well. Gnocchi served with a gorgonzola sauce has been a favourite dish of mine since I was a child. Now that I'm all grown up and have inherited the family recipe - I love the dish even more because it is always delicious and so easy to make! Perhaps you are seeking an easy recipe for a comforting homemade meal, or would like to serve a more sophisticated upgrade from your usual Mac N cheese at your next dinner party, either way try it out!

You will need...

1 x pack of gnocchi
1 x small single cream
1 x pack of gorgonzola cheese
pepper & spices to taste
olive oil

To begin, put a pot of unsalted water on the stove and bring it to a boil. While you are waiting, heat a pan over medium heat with a dash of olive oil. Once the pan is heated pour in the single cream and stir. if your water has come to a boil, add in the gnocchi and cook for approximately three minutes before straining. Heat the cream through (but don't let it boil) and add chunks of the gorgonzola. Stir in the cheese as it melts, add more according to taste. When the sauce starts to become richer, add in some fresh ground pepper and Italian spices.

Once the sauce is ready, mix in the cooked gnocchi. Ta Da! Finito! I usually serve my Gorgonzola Gnocchi with grilled sausages and a side of greens... delish!
