This is absolutely delicious and so easy. I use Castello Blue cheese; think that might be milder than Stilton or similar. However, it doesn’t serve 4 unless you’re the meanest host in town! I make this dish every few weeks and myself and my other half always finish it. It’s heaven.

Absolutely delicious and in such little time... like many others who have mentioned in their comments; my hubby too preferred crispy bacon sprinkled on top. I also added fried mushrooms and roasted pines nuts as suggested by some members below.

Very tasty! I used half fat creme fraiche (think it probably would have been too rich otherwise!) and added fried mushrooms, served with a salad. Mixed half the blue cheese in with the gnocchi, and sprinkled the rest on top :)

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.

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,

I don't like blue cheese so changed it to Feta and added some ricotta I had in the fridge.Excellent mid week meal-easy, fast and yummy!
