Italian fontina cheese, cubed
freshly grated Parmesan cheese
chopped fresh basil
Gnocchi in Fontina Sauce
- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the gnocchi, and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain, and set aside.
- Once the gnocchi goes into the pot, start the sauce, as you want the gnocchi 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 gnocchi into serving dishes, and spoon the sauce over them. Garnish with chopped fresh basil.
