|1 tbsp butter||4½ oz (125 g) Gorgonzola cheese|
|1 onion, finely chopped||1 package (about 18 oz/500 g) fresh or frozen gnocchi|
|⅓ cup coarsely chopped walnuts||sea salt and freshly ground black pepper|
|1 tbsp all-purpose flour||handful of fresh basil leaves, to garnish (optional)|
|2 cups whole milk|
In a saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the onion, and cook gently for about 5 minutes until soft. Now add the walnuts, and cook for another couple of minutes. Remove from the heat, and stir in the flour, then add a little milk. Return to the heat, and add the remaining milk, stirring constantly for 4-6 minutes until the sauce thickens.
Remove from the heat again, and stir in the Gorgonzola. Season with salt and pepper.
In a separate saucepan, cook the gnocchi as the package directs. Drain well. Add to the sauce, stirring gently to coat. Garnish with the basil leaves (if using), and serve immediately with a tomato and arugula salad.
If available, buy a carton of ready-made blue cheese pasta sauce to use, instead of making your own.
