The team at I Pastai make the BEST gnocchi (in our opinion). Their artisan, hand-processed and hand-packed fresh potato gnocchi is made using an authentic, traditional Italian family recipe. And not an artificial colour, flavour or preservative in sight! Simply paired in this recipe with earthy mushrooms, spinach and creamy blue cheese, it is simply divine.
  • 1 350g Pack of Fresh Gnocchi
  • 270 g of Portobello Mushrooms (small)
  • 2 of Garlic Clove
  • 50 g of Sour Cream
  • 1 of Brown Onion
  • 2 Tbsp of Butter (pantry)
  • 1 Small Bunch of Flatleaf Parsley
  • 1 75g Pack of Baby Spinach
  • 30 g of Blue Cheese

Prepare Ingredients:

Bring a pot of salted water to the boil. Peel and roughly chop garlic. Peel and small dice 34 of the onion (you will have left over). Pick parsley leaves and roughly chop, discarding stems. Slice mushrooms.

Cook Gnocchi:

Cook gnocchi following the pack instructions. When they float to the top of the pot, they are ready. Drain and drizzle with a little olive oil. Set aside.

Cook Onions & Mushrooms:

Meanwhile, heat butter in a large, deep-sided frypan over high heat. When the butter starts foaming, add the onion and mushrooms. Cook for 1 minute over high heat, then reduce to medium heat. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring a few times.

Add Gnocchi & Spinach:

Add the garlic, cook for 1-2 minutes. Add the cooked gnocchi and and good handful of spinach into the pan. Cook a further minute, until the spinach has just wilted. Take off the heat.

You Plate It:

To finish the gnocchi, crumble and scatter blue cheese over the top. Add sour cream and parsley to taste, folding in gently to combine. Divide amongst bowls and garnish with any remaining parsley. Enjoy!
