Yield: 4 servings
Prep time: 15 min | Cook time: 25 min
- 1/2 cup Trader Joe’s Heavy Cream
- 3/4 cup Trader Joe’s Fontina Cheese, grated
- 1 package Potato Gnocchi (located in the pasta section)
Heat cream in a small saucepan over medium heat until just simmering. Add two–thirds of the cheese; stir until melted. Remove from heat; cover pan to keep warm. Preheat oven to 400°. Spray an 8–inch square baking dish with cooking spray; set aside. Cook gnocchi according to package. Once cooked, transfer gnocchi with a slotted spoon to the 8–inch baking dish. Pour cheese sauce over gnocchi, and gently toss. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Bake gnocchi until golden brown, about 25 minutes.
