Albert.Coreitta's picture
Quick and easy white cheese sauce which make the gnocchi melt in your mouth! Very rich and decadent.
Ingredients
  Refrigerated gnocchi 1 Pound
  Unsalted butter 6 Tablespoon
  Chopped shallots 2 Tablespoon
  Fontina cheese 8 Ounce, cubed
  Heavy cream 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Freshly grated parmesan cheese 3 Tablespoon
  Chopped fresh basil 1 Tablespoon
Directions

1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the gnocci, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, and set aside.

2. Once the gnocci goes into the pot, start the sauce, as you want the gnocci to be done first. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallots, and cook for a few minutes, until tender. Stir in the cream, and heat to almost a boil. Gradually mix in the fontina and parmesan cheeses, being careful not to boil. Stir until smooth, then remove from the heat immediately, or the sauce may clump.

3. Place gnocci into serving dishes, and spoon the sauce over them. Garnish with chopped fresh basil.
