Gorgonzola and Pear Gnocchi



  • 3 oz gorgonzola cheese
  • 1 ripe pear, diced
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup light vegetable stock
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 package of gnocchi
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Boil the water.
  2. Dice your pear. Heat the butter in a small sauce pan on medium heat. Add the flour and whisk until color darkens slightly, about 2 minutes. Continue whisking and slowly add the vegetable stock, then the milk, until you get a mac-n-cheese type consistency, or slightly thinner. Add the gorgonzola and continue whisking until smooth.
  3. Add the gnocchi to the water and cook; remove the gnocchi as soon as they float to the top of the pan using a slatted spoon or gnocchi paddle. Add the pear to the sauce and let it warm up, adding the gnocchi to the sauce and stirring gently to coat, with a large wooden spoon.
