Gnocchi in Fontina Sauce

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Quick and easy white cheese sauce which make the gnocchi melt in your mouth! Very rich and decadent. Best served with a light salad to balance out the richness.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the gnocci, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, and set aside.
  • Once the gnocci goes into the pot, start the sauce, as you want the gnocci to be done first. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the shallots, and cook for a few minutes, until tender. Stir in the cream, and heat to almost a boil. Gradually mix in the fontina and parmesan cheeses, being careful not to boil. Stir until smooth, then remove from the heat immediately, or the sauce may clump.
  • Place gnocci into serving dishes, and spoon the sauce over them. Garnish with chopped fresh basil.
