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!!

Great recipe with good mix of flavours. If you find the blue cheese a little strong try a creamier blue such as Strathdon Blue which is much gentler than some of the stiltons.

My husband loved this as a big fan of blue cheese..bit too rich for me, would probably use a little less cheese next time.

A snap to make and absolutely delicious! Best not to worry about all the calories and fat... this is one of my new favourites.

First time I've cooked with gnocchi and I'd use this recipe again. I love blue cheese, but I think I'd use a little less next time as it was very rich. Tasty though!

Very yummy!! Served with a fresh salad and went down a treat.

Delicious! I served this with a salad of pears, walnuts, ruccola and honey so the sweetness of the fruit can contrast the salty blue cheese.

A superb winter warmer. Tesco fresh Gnocchi worked very well, I used half fat creme freche so as not to feel too guilty (an empty gesture I know with all the cheese and spuds!)
