Gnocchi and blue cheese bake
I had a bag of fresh gnocchi in the fridge to use up. There were 3 recipes for gnocchi and blue cheese bake on the BBC good food website. I choose the one that took 15 minutes to make, quick, easy and delicious.
500g fresh gnocchi
250g bag baby spinach
100ml crème fraîche , half-fat if preferred
4 tbsp grated parmesan
100g soft blue cheese
Cook the gnocchi in a large pan of boiling water according to pack instructions. Plunge the spinach into the same pan, then immediately drain through a colander and shake off any excess water.
Put the crème fraîche in a small ovenproof dish with the grated parmesan. Add the hot, drained gnocchi and spinach and give everything a good stir. Crumble the blue cheese over and season with ground pepper.
Slide the dish under a hot grill until the cheese is bubbling and golden. Serve immediately.
