Gnocchi with Creamy Gorgonzola Sauce

BT Calgary | posted Tuesday, Dec 5th, 2017

Pillowy potato dumplings cook right in the sauce, so there’s no need to use more than one pan to make this creamy side. Gorgonzola dolce has a mild, sweet flavour that doesn’t overwhelm, so you can serve this dish alongside a variety of mains – try it in place of mashed or scalloped potatoes.
