Gnocchi in gorgonzola sauce with spinach and toasted walnuts


  1. 500g chilled potato gnocchi
  2. 200g frozen leaf spinach
  3. 100g creamy Gorgonzola cheese
  4. 6 tbsp double cream
  5. 40g walnut pieces
  6. 25g grated Parmesan


  1. 1. Spread the spinach onto a plate lined with a few sheets of kitchen paper, defrost in the microwave and squeeze out the excess water.
  2. 2. Preheat the grill to medium-high and bring a medium pan of salted water to the boil.
  3. 3. Place the walnut pieces on a baking tray and lightly toast under the grill for 1 minute, shaking the tray now and then. Set aside.

Drop the chilled potato gnocchi into the boiling water and cook for 4 minutes or until they float to the surface. Drain well, return to the pan and add the spinach, Gorgonzola sauce and half the walnuts. Stir together gently, then spoon into a shallow, ovenproof dish. Scatter with the remaining walnuts and . Grill for 2-3 minutes, until golden and bubbling. Serve with a dressed, crisp green salad.

This is just the most delicious comforting dish! Kirsty*b is right though, gorgonzola is not vegetarian due to the calf rennet... but this would work well with another mild blue cheese. Cambozola is a good alternative!

I'd never tried gnocchi before and this recipe sounded like a good first try! It smells amazing, it's quick to make and straight forward. Unfortunately I found it to be a bit rich and slimy. It is vegetarian, I think the person below was thinking vegan. I'd give it 5/10

Neither Gorgonzola or parmesan cheese are vegetarian. (!!) It is possible to buy "Parmesan like" cheese, in a pre grated format which contains no rennet, but I've never come across a rennet-free Gorgonzola! Unimpressed by Delicious - this recipe should not be in your Veggie section.

my whole family loved it! Perhaps it might not be suitable for small children, though.
