    Serves: 4 

    • Gnocchi
    • 800g floury potatoes
    • 2 cups (250g) flour
    • Sauce
    • 100g gorgonzola or other blue cheese
    • 60g butter
    • 100ml cream

    • 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.

    I have never made fresh Gnocchi before and am a beginner cook but this recipe was easy to follow. The Gnocchi turned out a little soggy but actually tasted very nice and the sauce was very rich so lovely as a small portion for a starter.  -  28 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
