Gnocchi had always been something that I avoided making but after finding this recipe it has become a regular dinner.


Serves: 4 

  • Gnocchi
  • 800g floury potatoes
  • 2 cups (250g) flour
  • Sauce
  • 100g gorgonzola or other blue cheese
  • 60g butter
  • 100ml cream
  • 1 pinch salt and pepper, to taste
  • Parmesan cheese, grated

Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:55min 

  1. Peel potatoes and boil for 20 minutes until soft then drain and peel. While still warm pass through a potato ricer. Add the flour and knead the whole mixture well into a smooth dough.
  2. Sprinkle work surface with flour. Roll part of the dough into a 2cm wide sausage. Cut the sausage into 2 cm long pieces.
  3. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil and add the gnocchi to the boiling water in batches. When the gnocchi floats to the surface wait 1-2 minutes and then pick them out with a slotted spoon. Bring water to the boil again and cook the next portion.
  4. Melt the gorgonzola and butter together in a saucepan over a low heat. Pour in the cream and cook for about 3-4 minutes until the cream is thick. Season with salt pepper.
  5. To serve place the gnocchi in a bowl then cover with the sauce. Sprinkle with some parmesan and serve immediately.
