Method

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Slide the dish under a hot grill until the cheese is bubbling and golden. Serve immediately.

Used some mascarpone together with creme fraiche just because I had some of the former to use up. Otherwise I stuck with the recipe. Loads of flavour and super quick so will happily make again.

Absolutely delicious! I add nutmeg and toasted pine nuts and a touch more creme fraiche. Yum!

I added some crisped up lardons as well, for an extra something. Delicious!

Maximum flavour from such simplicity of method. Really delicious. I added some peas because I didn't have enough spinach and they worked well, but really I think that it's best to make this dish as written. Yummy stuff,

This was far too rich and sickly for our taste. I won't be making it again. If you adore blue cheese i'm sure you'll love it :)

There was a little too much blue cheese in this for me. The sauce it made was a nice thickness and coated the gnocchi nicely - I would prefer something similar with a different cheese I think. Probably wouldn't make it again, but this is for personal taste reasons rather than any issue with the recipe.

I made this following the recipe exactly and it was lovely! I would thoroughly recommend it - the ingredients were simple and it hardly took any time to make.

REALLY easy and the sauce tastes gorgeous. One of my friends suggested using four cheese tortelloni instead of gnocchi (for a REAL cheese hit!) and I LOVE it. Definitely a hit in our house!

The flavour was amazingly good, but it was to rich for me. Next time I halve everything and serve it with a salad. That will fresh it up a little bit. But... Very Good Flavours!!
