Directions

  • In a 12-inch skillet add olive oil and set over medium heat.
  • When the oil is hot add the shallots, oregano, sage and black pepper. Saute gently until the shallots are soft but not browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and saute for another 30 seconds or just until fragrant.
  • Pour in the heavy cream and let it gently simmer for about 5 minutes or until the cream is slightly thickened.
  • Turn the heat to low and add in the gorgonzola cheese. Stir gently to help the cheese melt into the cream, about 5 minutes. When the cheese is almost completely melted into the cream add the baby spinach and let the warmth of the sauce help soften the fresh spinach.
  • Add in the cooked gnocchi and toss to combine.
  • To serve, sprinkle the top with chopped toasted pine nuts and optional crumbled gorgonzola cheese, grated Parmesan cheese and a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes.
