  • 2.6 lbs pre-cooked gnocchi Note 1
  • 7 oz Gorgonzola Note 2
  • 2 ½ tablespoon Parmesan , freshly grated
  • cup heavy cream
  • cup milk
  • 2 tablespoon dry white wine
  • 5 grindings of nutmeg to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt or Kosher
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper


  • Set a large pot of water to cook. In the meantime, prepare the sauce.
  • Remove the rind of the Gorgonzola and cut it into small cubes.
  • Place in a small saucepan together with the grated Parmesan, cream, milk, and wine. Heat gently on low heat to melt the cheese, stir often. Adjust the taste with nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
  • Cook the gnocchi in salted water according to the packet’s instructions, those that I use normally need only 2-3 minutes. Drain well and return to the empty pot.
  • Pour the sauce on top and stir gently to coat. Serve immediately.


  1. They can be found in the refrigerator section of the supermarket. I don’t recommend using dried gnocchi, I don’t like their taste and texture. Homemade gnocchi are amazing but making them takes time.
  2. I prefer Gorgonzola dolce; it is milder and creamier. However, picante works as well, the sauce will have a stronger flavor.
