Time-saving recipe: gnocchi alla bava

Gnocchi Alla Bava

Gnocchi alla bava are a very quick first course to prepare, but above all they are incredibly greedy: you will love them.

Gnocchi alla bava are a first course of great delicacy. They owe their name to the row of melted fontina found in the sauce. In this dish, if you like it, it is good to abound with pepper , which gives tone to its taste and perfectly supports the cheeses and potato gnocchi. The only possible difficulty of this recipe is in managing the cooking of the sauce and the gnocchi at the same time. They must be ready at the same time, so that the taste of the fontina melted in the cream can be the best possible.

It is not a diet recipe, but if you accompany it with a light second course, a small tear once in a while can also be done, especially if in the end we enjoy a goodness like this .
