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

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!
