  • Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil over high heat.

Make the Sauce:

  • Heat the heavy cream in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until small bubbles begin to form in the middle and on the sides, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the Gorgonzola and cook, stirring, until it’s completely melted, about 2 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and whisk in the flour. Cook, stirring, until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 3 minutes more. Turn off the heat and cover to keep warm.

Cook the Gnocchi and Toss with the Sauce:

  • To get the gnocchi into the boiling water, fold the parchment ends to form a chute and gently shake the gnocchi out, taking care not to clump them together as you drop them in. Give one gentle stir, wait until the gnocchi all float to the surface of the water, and then cook them for 1 minute. Carefully drain the gnocchi in a colander. Transfer them to the sauce and gently toss to coat. Serve immediately, topped with the parsley, if using.

    Simply perfect. I consulted with the person working at my grocery's cheese counter to select the right gorgonzola for this recipe and it was a dream. I cut the recipe in half and it worked just fine (1tsp of flour to make sure it thickened to a cream well). Such a delicious, elegant dish!

    I made my gnocchis with another recipe but I tried to make the sauce and while the flavour was really good, it came out a bit thin. Letting it sit thickened it right up though
