• 2 tbl butter

  • 1 cup cream

  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh parsley chopped

i was going to write about peter lugers tonight, i had a change of heart. this is a recipe you should all have. lugers can wait, although the bacon was definitely worth discussing.

the other day i found a package of gnocchi in my freezer, gnocchi are little potato dumplings, oh! did i mention i went to see my cheese guy? my favorite person in the world right now.  i told him i was making gnocchi for dinner and i was looking for a good cheese to use in a cream sauce. i walked out with 3 hunks of cheese and 2 samples to try. e and i did a taste test and decided on the gorgonzola. it was actually one of the samples and we had just enough for the sauce, so we used it.

if your looking for a healthy meal, this is not it. unless you count the salad on the side ;-) it is full of cream and butter, oh yes, and my new favorite spice, truffle salt. it’s amazing. e and i managed to polish off a whole bag of gnocchi and a half a loaf of fresh bread. ready for this one? try it, it’s a great treat and a really good meal.

gnocchi with a gorgonzola sauce

i prepare the sauce as soon as i put the gnocchi in the boiling water. it takes no time at all. 

  1. in a small saucepan, add butter and melt. when bubbling, add flour and whisk. keep whisking.
  2. when flour is incorporated, after about a minute, add your cream and milk, continue whisking. after about a minute, add your cheese and truffle salt.
  3. taste it, if it needs salt and pepper add it. pour of gnocchi and serve.

this is a quick and easy dinner that tastes great.
