  • Check out your local supermarket, they have great pasta sauces on the shelves


  • Most pasta sauces would also go well with gnocchi. There are also plenty of those recipes on this site too.


  • Look no further than this site and hunt through the recipes section as you will find gnocchi sauces gold!


  • Yum, I love gnocchi and would love a creamy sauce recipe for it. I don’t go much on the tomato based ones


  • I like making gnocchi with bolognese or even just a plain tomato based sauce.

    I fry a diced onion and add passatta and just simmer for half an hour. Serve with lots of parmesan cheese for a quick dinner!


  • fry off some garlic and finely diced onion in butter add in some finely diced capsicum, shallots, then pour cream in the pan, season to taste wait until it starts to thicken, take off the heat and it will continue to thicken. I often add in a few tablespoons of Mersey valley spreadable cheese for a nice pop of taste.


  • Ingredients
    For the cheese sauce
    25g/1oz unsalted butter
    ½ onion, chopped
    1 garlic clove, chopped
    50ml/2fl oz white wine
    200ml/7fl oz double cream
    100g/3½oz Pont l’Evêque cheese, chopped
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    For the gnocchi
    150g/5½oz ready-made gnocchi, cooked according to packet instructions
    1 tbsp olive oil
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Preparation method
    For the cheese sauce, heat the butter in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the onion and garlic until soft.
    Add the white wine and simmer until reduced by half. Add the double cream and simmer gently.
    Stir in the cheese, season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper and warm through until the cheese has melted.
    For the gnocchi, place the gnocchi into a serving bowl and drizzle with oil. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper and stir.
    To serve, pour the sauce over the gnocchi.


  • some great ideas here ladies… some i want to try right now


  • some of these suggestions are making me quite hungry :)


  • There are some good recipes here, also another mum posted re the best recipes site, that’s my favourite go to place for recipes.


  • garlic clove crushed
    cream
    parmesan cheese grated
    egg yolk
    mix all together well and simmer to cook egg.


  • I haven’t got a recipe for a good cheesy creamy sauce, but burnt butter and sage is so quick and easy (also super unhealthy)


  • I sometimes use the following with pasta for a quick meal, and there’s no reason it wouldn’t work with gnochi … 200 gm container of Tzatziki dip, mixed with a dash of tabasco sauce. Simple and tasty. I chop a couple of spring onions into the mix, and some grated Parmesan cheese. You could add a little tuna, cooked chicken or bacon too.


  • If it is for the kids too then try some garlic, grated zucchini, mushroom and cream.


  • Carbonara sauce is good and I just dined at a restaurant last week and they served duck on top and the sauce was a gravy flavoured with a wine which was very nice. You can also add a bulgarian feta with onion and bacon which is delish
