Three Cheese Gnocchi

 
I adore gnocchi, there's something wonderfully simple about them, but they make a nice and hearty meal. I think they're a much under-rated form of pasta, especially as they cook so quickly.

Ingredients:



  • 1 bag of gnocchi (500g)

  • 100g blue cheese, such as Stilton or Danish blue, finely chopped

  • 75g Mascarpone cheese

  • 50g Parmesan cheese, finely grated


 

Method:



  1. Pre-heat oven to 220 degrees.

  2. Put on a big pan of water to boil and salt well.

  3. Lightly butter a large oven proof dish.

  4. When water is boiling, add gnocchi to pan.

  5. Watch the pan of gnocchi and use a slotted spoon to remove them when they float up to the top. This should only take a few minutes.

  6. Place the gnocchi in the oven proof dish and gently stir in the mascarpone and blue cheese until well mixed.

  7. Sprinkle half the Parmesan over the top.

  8. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

  9. Serve with the other half of the Parmesan cheese.
