Meat Free Monday… Gnocchi with Gorgonzola, walnuts and spinach ๐Ÿ˜‹

Manic Monday here… very busy work day, then came home to sort out the final bits on ย  Hubby’s VAT return ๐Ÿ˜ณ Need something quick but comforting. Gorgonzola and walnut Gnocchi.


I love Blue Cheese, I love walnuts – okay, I just love food…. ย but this combination of flavours with soft pillows of gnocchi with a pop of green from the wilted spinach was just too much to resist ๐Ÿ˜‹ I found this Recipeย andย eerrm ‘amended’ it to what I had in


I start by gently dry frying some walnuts, then set them aside.


Boil a pan of lightly salted water ready to put the gnocchi into for a minute or so till floating and cooked, I use Aldi Gnocchi, which is a great cupboard standby, drain and stir into the sauce.


In a pan lightly fry a very finely chopped onion, then add 250ml double cream and 150g of blue cheese, gently heat till cheese has melted, add a good handful of spinach, a shake of dried sage and season to taste – add the cooked, drained gnocchi stir through


Serve with a sprinkling of toasted walnuts – very rich and very tasty ๐Ÿ˜‡


Would have been nice to have a salad with it – but someone…. (Hubby) used the lastbofmthe salad in a lunchtime sandwich ๐Ÿ™„

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
