Here I present you my recipe Gnocchi with Gorgonzola. A popular dish combined with spinach for practical quick cooking.

Blue cheese originally comes from the small town of Gorgonzola in Lombardy in northern Italy. I like this piquant cheese for cooking or something. I like the creamy, mild varieties known as “dolce” just as much as the slightly hotter, longer-ripened “piccante” varieties.

You can combine this soft cheese with blue mould wonderfully with pasta or gnocchi. The fine spinach on top captures the intensive spice and sharpness of the cheese and rounds off the dish perfectly.

Have fun with the preparation and good luck!

1. Prepare Gorgonzola sauce

Get yourself a creamy soft and mild gorgonzola. The soft gorgonzola you need for your sauce only roughly crush. You can use the whole piece. Since this Gorgonzola is very mild, nothing can go wrong with the amount.

You can crumble a hot, ripe, spicy gorgonzola. You should only use 2/3 of the indicated amount. How much do you need: You can feel it as you taste the sauce.

Prepare the sauce with the blue cheese and spinach first. The sauce is waiting for the gnocchi!

Gnocchi in a fast way: Buy fresh gnocchi from the supermarket’s refrigerated shelf and prepare them according to instructions.

Chef Thomas Sixt recommends it to you if you need it quickly!

3. Prepare spinach

Spinach is a plant similar to salad. That’s why I recommend that you prepare it like a salad: wash, dry and clean. For drying you can use a salad spinner.
