Oh this is divine!!! We went out to eat one night and I had a gnocchi dish with a 3 cheese sauce that I have been trying to duplicate. After having this... I'm going to scratch my prior attempt! This was so awesome! The flavor is just perfect for this dish! Thank you for posting!
This recipe is out of this world! The gorgonzola sauce has a nice creamy texture and consistency that holds to the gnocci perfectly. The amount of gorgonzola called for is right on and incredibly flavorful without being overpowering. I have been looking for a cream sauce with gorgonzola cheese to add to my recipe box, and this one is it.
Extremely simple and quick. I made the sauce on the stovetop in the same pan I had melted the butter, so it melted nicely. I also added fresh basil. I upped the gorgonzola to 1/3 just for kicks. The sauce coated my gnocchi really well. The second time I made it, I added a tblspn of tomato paste because I had a can I had to finish. This was also fantastic, but if you decide to go in the tomato direction, add a bit of nutmeg.
