  • 500 grams Gnocchi fresh or pre-made is ok
  • 100 grams Gorgonzola Cheese crumbled
  • 100 ml Heavy Cream
  • 4 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • Fresh Cracked Black Pepper to taste
  • Salt to boil


  • In a large pot begin to boil HEAVILY salted water.
  • In a large saucepan start by melting the butter on medium heat. When fully melted add the minced garlic. Once fragrant (but not burnt) pour in the Heavy Cream and turn the heat up high. Make sure to whisk the cream so it does not burn, and to also incorporate the melted butter.
  • When the cream starts to bubble, add all of the Gorgonzola , and keep whisking until the cheese has fully melted into the sauce. Continue stirring for 3-5 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened.
  • Add the Cracked Black Pepper and give it another stir. At this point, add the gnocchi to the water and just boil for 2-3 minutes. Remember this is not an actual pasta and cooks much faster than a typical dry spaghetti. Continue stirring the sauce while the gnocchi is cooking to prevent it from coagulating.
  • Take about 60ml (1/4 cup) of the water and add it to the sauce. Drain the gnocchi and add it to the pan. Toss it around a bit to make sure every piece is coated and then you can plate it. Garnish with fresh chopped basil if you so choose.
