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.

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!

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!)
