Ingredients
  

  • 1 ½ lb gnocchi
  • 100 g Gorgonzola cheese
  • 200 g half and half
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup low sodium chicken stock
  • 4 large garlic cloves
  • cup chopped onions
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach use more if desired
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Chopped toasted walnut to serve

Instructions
 

  • Note: Because this dish is so fast to prepare and gnocchi cooks so quickly, I recommend you make the sauce first and boil the gnocchi just before you add it to the sauce.
    In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the chopped onions and saute until softened and fragrant, add the chopped garlic to the softened onions and continue to saute for another minute or two. Do keep an eye so that the garlic does not burn
  • Pour half and half and the chicken stock into the pan then season with black pepper, Italian seasoning and stir to combine. Reduce the heat and bring the sauce to a gentle simmer for about 2-3 minutes.
  • While the sauce is simmering, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil on medium-high heat, add the gnocchi and boil for 2 minutes or according to the packet instructions. Drain and set aside. You will know the gnocchi is cooked when it floats to the top of the water
  • Stir in cubed gorgonzola cheese to the simmering sauce, and mix until melted and combined. The creamy sauce should be slightly reduced at this point.
  • Add the boiled gnocchi to the sauce and stir to combine, Stir in the fresh baby spinach and mix until wilted. Taste and adjust salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and serve immediately with some chopped toasted walnut and freshly grated parmesan cheese (optional). Enjoy!
