Melt Gorgonzola cheese in milk to prepare a delicious sauce to coat your gnocchi…

Ingredients (for 2)

  • 2 cups fresh gnocchi
  • 2 tbsp Gorgonzola cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt


  • Bring water with rock salt to boil in a deep saucepan and cook the gnocchi according to the package directions (as with every pasta recipe, water should be abundant)
  • In the meantime, take a saucepan and melt butter at medium/low heat, without making it brown
  • When butter is melted, remove from heat, stir in the flour, return to heat and continue stirring until the flour gets smooth and with a sandy but not brown color (about 4-5 minutes)
  • Stir in milk at room temperature and pieces of Gorgonzola cheese, whisking constantly
  • As cheese starts to melt and sauce to thick, add more milk, calibrating the quantity to get a smooth and glossy cream
  • Drain the gnocchi and return them to the saucepan
  • Pour the gorgonzola cream and toss to combine; serve hot!
