    Also known as scallions or green onions, spring onions are in fact very young onions, harvested…

  • 100g medium-flavoured soft blue cheese, such as dolcelatte
  • 250g tub mascarpone
  • 225g bag washed baby spinach
  • 50g cooked thin and crispy smoked streaky bacon
  • Green salad and crusty bread, to serve

Method

  1. Put a pan of salted water on to boil for the gnocchi. Meanwhile, slice the spring onions and blue cheese. Spoon the mascarpone into a large deep frying pan. Add the blue cheese and spring onions and leave to melt over a medium heat.

  2. Stir the mascarpone mixture. Tip the gnocchi into the boiling water and cook for about 3 minutes, until they rise to the surface.

  3. Add the spinach in large handfuls to the cheese mixture and stir until just wilted. Crumble in half the bacon. Skim the gnocchi from the pan with a draining spoon, stir into the cheese mixture, then crumble over the remaining bacon. Serve with salad and crusty bread.

Love this recipe so quick and easy and includes my favourite foods. I've always liked gnocchi and this is now my favourite way of having it. So delicious and moreish. I thought the blue cheese would be to strong but it works perfectly.

Have made this loads, a firm favourite. I just use cooking bacon and whatever blue cheese that comes to hand first. Also tend to add the whole bunch of spring onions (6-7) as like the taste they give.

To prevent this dish being too rich and overpowering never use smoked bacon and blue cheese together....far too much salt in fact I never use bacon at all and find the result is fine.

Made this the first time tonight using brie, amazing flavour and so simple, next time will add some cherry tomatos or sun dried tomatos for that something extra to it and would use bacon lardons instead of the streaky bacon. This will be a regualar meal for us

This is a very simple, fast and delicious dish. The only think I changed was smoked bacon lardons insteady of streaky and added a few mushrooms that needed using up. Will definitely be doing this one again.

I also crumble in some black pudding and use pancetta lardons. But the black pudding goes great and Gives it that little extra taste - delicious 5/5 - also making your own Gnocchi makes the recipe even better plus they are easy to make
