No recipe image available.Homemade potato gnocchi served in a buttery gorgonzola cream sauce.

Recipe Ingredients:

10 ounces boiled and peeled potatoes
4 ounces all-purpose flour
4 ounces steamed and chopped spinach
2 large eggs
Salt and nutmeg

Gorgonzola Sauce:
5 ounces gorgonzola cheese
3/4 cup cream
1/4 cup butter

Cooking Directions:

  1. For Gnocchi: Mix the flour, the eggs, the mashed potatoes (still warm) and the spinach (be sure to have squeezed out all moisture) until you get a soft dough. Let stand for twenty minutes. Roll out the dough into long rolls about a 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 1-inch pieces. You can shape these by making little balls and pressing lightly with a fork or the thumb.
  2. Bring a pot of salted water to the boil. Gently drop in the gnocchi. When they float, remove with a slotted spoon and place in a warm serving dish.
  3. For Sauce: Melt the chopped Gorgonzola cheese in the cream and butter over a low flame.
  4. Pour the Gorgonzola sauce over the gnocchi, mix gently and serve at once.

Makes 4 servings.
