Baked Gnocchi with Sage and Cheese Sauce
Baked Gnocchi with Sage and Cheese Sauce is a delicious departure from heavy mac and cheese. A comforting dish of pillowy soft gnocchi bathed in a creamy, two cheese sauce flavored with earthy sage.
This dish will warm you from the inside out. For such a cheese-laiden dish, it is surprisingly light, that is because of the soft, homemade gnocchi.
You could call it gnocchi mac and cheese, whatever you do call it you will be calling its name with love.
Is gnocchi pasta or a potato?
What does ‘gnocchi’ mean?
What you will notice in the cheese sauce recipe is that I added chicken or vegetable stock. This is a great way to add extra flavor to the cheese sauce.
I like to use Italian fontina for this recipe as it is a really nice melting cheese. White cheddar, gruyere or any of your favorite, good melting cheese will work. Parmesan cheese is a must.
