This is my favourite sauce for gnocchi. I love all gnocchi served with this sauce: potato, ricotta, flour gnocchi… they all taste fantastic with this sauce. Do you think it might have something to do with the fact that gorgonzola is actually my all time favourite cheese?! 😉 Well, anyhow it is also a very easy sauce and you can litterally have it ready in less than 5 minutes. So, that’s another reason to love it, right? Here you have it… the creamiest and most sinful dish I have ever cooked!
Ingredients (for 4 people):
200 ml – 6.8 oz. cream
150 gms – 5.3 oz. gorgonzola dolce (the softer and milder one)
Parmigiano Reggiano, thinly grated
A few pistachios to serve
1 full dose of potato gnocchi as per MsM’s recipe.
Put the cream and gorgonzola in a saucepan and let it cook on a slow fire until the cheese melts and the sauce slightly thickens. Season with salt and pepper and keep aside.
Cook the potato gnocchi as per the instructions that you find here. Mix them well with the sauce in the pan. Add a handful of thinly grated Parmigiano Reggiano and mix until well combined.
Serve hot with a few pistachios for a little crunch and some more thinly grated Parmigiano Reggiano on the top.
The sauce looks so velvety and delicious. Bookmarked!

This looks so delicious and comforting! I have to admit gorgonzola is not my favorite, but I should try the gorgonzola dolce. Maybe I’ll like the milder version better. I bet this would be delicious with other cheeses too.
Mmmmmmm…I love pasta with Gorgonzola sauce, too! Your gnocchi look amazing! Have a great Monday, Manu~
It may be my favorite sauce for gnocchi, too, although mushrooms are in the running… love the pistachio topping!
OMG no you didn’t! I’ve been fawning over this recipe that just popped up on Epicurious this month for “Gnocchi Gratin with Gogonzola Dolce”…same ingredients minus the ginger…did you by any chance take a glance at the new BonApettit or Gourmet mag this month? lol. This looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it!

How deliciously creamy this is, definitely would like to have a big spoonful of this. Gnocchi is the ultimate way of preparing potatoes and you have done an awesome job with this dish. Have a great Monday Manuela!

This looks absolutely delicious! I’ve been thinking of making homemade gnocchi, actually. Now I’m dying to try it.
Eva kitcheninspirations.wordpress.com says
I totally agree, Manu. Gorgonzola is the best tasting cheese EVER. And our favourite sauce for gnocchi which looks so tender and fluffy! I may have to splurge on the weekend and make this, I haven’t had gnocchi for a long time!
Kiri W. says
MMMM! I rate Italian restaurants by a) whether they offer this dish and b) how good the dish is. My absolute favorite!
I’ll have to try your recipe 🙂

Gorgonzola is one of my favorite cheeses. Goes great in sauces for anything and is delicious also alone. Love it!
Mi Vida en un Dulce says
I’m with you, Gorgonzola is one of my favorities blue cheese, it’s not too stronge and gives to your mouth a little bit of spicy. Make a cream with ti is absolutly a wonderful idea.
delicious gnocchi flavourful

Mi ricordo da piccolina quando mia mamma faceva qualsiasi piatto con gorgonzola mi giravo dall’altra parte … adesso vado indietro e mi dico … “ma perché … quanta bontà persa!” … 🙂

Looks delicious and cooked to perfection. You really never fail to impress. I’ve never tried making gnocchi. I think I should try. Looks so good.

I love gorgonzola… I must make gnocchi!
Lovely potato dish indeed! I just had Gnocchi at a restaurant recently & had to pay a dear price for it. Would love to try making it at home 🙂

Manu, two of my favourite words – Gnocchi and Gorgonzola. You’ve just set off a carb craving! Love the extra texture you’ve added with the pistachio nuts.

Ooooh this looks so comfy and cozy. Can I add bacon to it too!!
Looks great! Love gnocchi but have never had the courage to try to make it at home.
I’ve shared some awards with you. Please drop by and pick them up!

Hi Manu, this looks like an Italian comfort food. Homemade gnocchi with gorgonzola. The pistachio on top will give a nice crunch and flavor to the creamy flavor.
Divya @flavourfiesta says
That certainly does looks sinful, but sinfully GOOD! I have never made gnocchi at home, but I know I should. This must be hundreds of times better than store bought, which I find too dense. I wish you lived next to me, because I would just pop over for dinner…haha.
