For the salad


  • STEP 1

    Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, then lower in the gnocchi and Tenderstem® broccoli. Simmer for 4-5 mins until the gnocchi rise to the surface of the water and the Tenderstem® broccoli is bright green. Drain well, reserving a cup (about 150ml) of the cooking water.

  • STEP 2

    To make the salad, whisk the olive oil and vinegar together in a bowl with some seasoning. Add the remaining ingredients and toss well to coat in the dressing. Set aside.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the crème fraiche, blue cheese and 100ml pasta water in a wide pan over a medium heat, stirring together to make a sauce. Season with pepper and a little salt (the blue cheese will add some saltiness). When bubbling, smooth and combined, tip in the gnocchi and Tenderstem® broccoli. Toss everything together briefly, adding a splash more pasta water to help the sauce coat the gnocchi if needed. Divide between two bowls and serve with the parsley salad.
