  3. Remove the lid and add the garlic, cook for 1-2 mins, then stir the gnocchi into the pan. Scatter over blobs of cheese and the parsley.

No good. The blue cheese completely dominates

I was so excited about this dish, I love gnocchi, I love mushrooms and I love blue cheese. But this was inedible. It was really dry, the blue cheese was overpoweringly strong and it felt very stodgy. I genuinely ate three bites and couldn't eat the rest. Maybe my cheese was too strong, but I wouldn't try it again or recommend it.

Very good! I used skillet gnocchi and made it in one pan. Delicious!

Delicious! Added a bit of creme fraiche just to cream it up a bit. Also just a lit bit of creativity with the herbs!

Really good! Had it with garlic bread. Another brilliant use for gnocchi. Used normal mushrooms and Castello creamy blue cheese

Tasty dish, I began by cooking onion, garlic, chilli's and parsley in the butter and then added tofu to the pan for it cook and soak up all the flavours. I then followed the rest of the recipe but added more herbs and it was a really good cheesy meal.

This is a yummy, filling very simple and quick recipe. Will definitely be it cooking again.

We loved this - quick, easy and very tasty. My only tweak was to loosen the sauce with a couple of tablespoons creme fraiche to make it less 'claggy'. I served it up with a crisp green salad and the family was very happy. One for the recipe box.

I really enjoyed this and it was very quick to make. I'm thinking of doing it again with some smokey chorizo added and a little chilli for some extra flavour.
