Gnocchi with courgette and gorgonzola

14 Oct

Gnocchi with courgettes and gorgonzola

Ingredients

For the gnocchi (from La Cucina Italiana):

  • 2½ pounds baking potatoes, scrubbed and unpeeled
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour, plus extra
  • Salt
  • Freshly grated nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons Grana Padano, grated

For the sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin  olive oil
  • 2 shallots, diced
  • 3 courgettes, thinly sliced
  • Salt
  • 9 ounces Gorgonzola cheese
  • Freshly ground pepper

 

Instructions

I used this recipe to make the gnocchi. Make the gnocchi according to instructions.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil to cook the gnocchi.  This will take about 3 minutes – they’re ready once they float to the top.

In a large pot, warm the olive oil and add the shallots, and the courgettes. Cook for 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the Gorgonzola to the pan and once it’s melted add the cooked gnocchi. Let the ingredients combine for 1-2 minutes and then serve. Enjoy!

Trying new food: Hagelslag!

Trying new food: Hagelslag!

Chocolate sprinkles on toast for adults? YES! Proof that the Dutch are awesome.
It may look simple but the secret is in the sprinkles! Dutch sprinkles are much better than any other chocolate sprinkles I’ve ever tried. They TASTE like chocolate. Plus, the bread in the Netherlands is really nice.

I guess I’ve been living in the UK for too long!
