No words needed to describe the pin that inspired me:
I can't even begin to describe how delicious this dish is. Pictures make it look good, but it is 100x better in person, I promise. Come visit us down South and I'll make it for you! It is the epitome of warm, cozy comfort food, and the cure for any bad mood or rainy day.
Okay, I'll stop selling it like a used car salesman and get to the how-to and some pictures!
I got this recipe from Noble Pig but altered it a bit to fit our tastes/ what I had in the fridge. So if you're a purist and want the original recipe, check it out there!
To make this heaven-in-a-pan you'll need:
- A glass baking dish
-1 lb of gnocchi ( I get mine from Trader Joes, only $1.99!)
-2 Tbsp butter
-2-3 Tsp fresh garlic, finely chopped
-1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
-3/4 cup milk
-1/2 cup gruyere-swiss cheese (I used leftover cheese from the Onion Tart
-1/2 cup fontina-parmesean cheese
-1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper
-1/2 cup shredded parmesean/romano cheese
-Small basil leaves for garnish
BEFORE YOU BEGIN: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees!
Step 2: While your gnocchi is cooking in the pot, dice up your garlic and mix together the gruyere-swiss and the parmsean-fontina. (NOT the regular shredded parmesean-romano- save that for the end!)
