I usually like my gnocchi with a little more spring in its bite, but if you like yours softer than down pillows, these blobs of potato pasta are sure to impress. In fact, they are so tender that they dissipate in the mouth almost involuntarily. They're that magical.

And despite being ensconced in a rich, creamy gorgonzola sauce – terribly winsome for blue cheese lovers like myself, the distinct potato-ey flavour of the handmade gnocchi shines through, complemented harmoniously with the sweet nuttiness of crunchy walnuts.
