Gnocchi in Gorgonzola Garlic Cream Sauce

Gnocchi Gorgonzola garlic cream sauce topped off with Asiago shredded cheese was a perfect combination!

Anyone who knows me knows how much I love garlic!  I have been craving Gnocchi and Gorgonzola cheese sauce for about a month and the addition of garlic made this dish very satisfying.  You can delete the garlic but as I always say add more!

Gnocchi with Gorgonzola Garlic Cream Sauce

1 Package of Gnocchi (I used Trader Joe’s)
3 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 Tablespoon butter
8 oz Whole Cream
1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
Shredded  Asiago Cheese to sprinkle on top

Cook Gnocchi according to package directions.  Strain and set aside.
Combine butter and garlic in small sauce pan and saute about 5 minutes
Add cream heat to simmer then add crumbled Gorgonzola cheese and stir to melt .  I had to add a teaspoon of flour to thicken the sauce and salt and pepper to taste.  Heat on medium low and stir often to make sure it does not burn.  Pour sauce over Gnocchi and mix well.  Serve and top with shredded Asiago or Parmesan cheese.
