Gnocchi with Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

Mangia: Gnocchi Fresca with Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

Walking through the market today, my eyes were drawn to the fresh gnocchi an older Italian woman was selling. It looked so fresh and instantly I knew I was buying some. This is one of my favorite ways to prepare gnocchi! It was my roommates first time having gnocchi as well and she absolutely loved it!

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups of milk + more if needed
  • gnocchi ( the fresher the better)
  • 0.15 kg gorgonzola estimate

Boil a pot of water. Then once melt the butter over a medium low heat. Once melted completely, add flour a little at a time until a thicker consistency but not clumpy. Once your water is boiling, add gnocchi. If it is fresh, it only needs to cook for 2-3 minutes. Drain and set to the side.

To the butter mixture, add milk little by little while stirring to incorporate. Let simmer on low heat while stirring for a few minutes. Then, add the gorgonzola and stir until melted. Season with salt & pepper.

Toss the gnocchi in the sauce and serve warm. If you have it available, chop some fresh sage and throw in the sauce last minute. Such a good combination of flavors!
