Good Eats from Trader Joe's
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. A few weeks ago, I picked up a bag of Gnocchi al Gorgonzola at Trader Joe's and just got around to making it. The consensus: It is Delicious!!! My sweet little peanut loved it, which is unusual (she kept calling it Pin-gnocchi-o). I have never had Gnocchi before and the texture was different from regular pasta, a little more like a potato dumpling. But, the gorogonzola sauce...amazing. Gorgonzola (said in my best Wallace voice) is a stronger tasting cheese with a bit of a zing. Gotta love the stinky cheese! So, if you're ever in need of an easy side dish, this is the ticket. It takes only 7 minutes to make. The only complaint, there's not much in the bag, enough for maybe 2 or 3 adults.
