When I was asked to make something with the products that Alessi Foods offers I was struck with about 6 different ideas. Since I can’t fill my whole house with pasta, pasta, and more pasta I knew I needed to reel it in and pick my ultimate favorite. Gnocchi won. Don’t get me wrong I love pasta but there is just something so comforting and lovely about gnocchi. PLUS when it’s swimming in a thick and creamy gorgonzola sauce you cannot go wrong. Of course, I also threw in some baby spinach because you gotta get a little green in there to call it a meal.
Well, at least that is what I tell myself.
The other thing I love about this dish is that while I kept it vegetarian for the shoot you can totally throw on some grilled steak and call this a meat and potato lover's dream come true. I guess if you’re not a big fan of red meat grilled chicken would work well too. BUT how great are blue cheese and red meat? It’s literally the perfect combination.
Oh, I almost forgot about the nut topping! The toasted pine nuts bring a burst of flavor and a little crunch to this soft and creamy dish. PLUS it’s a great way to use pine nuts that isn’t pesto. We all love pesto but it can’t be the only use for these lovely little nuts.
Now, get into the kitchen and make this creamy gorgonzola gnocchi!
