ROMANTIC PASTA DINNER


With his simple double-boiler method, Chef Fabio shares a simple and indulgent three-cheese and crumbled sausage sauce perfect for his pillowy gnocchi, or almost any pasta.

GNOCCHI WITH THREE CHEESES AND SAUSAGE
Recipe by Fabio Viviani
Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:
1 batch Fabio’s Gnocchi dough
1 cup shredded white Cheddar
1 cup shredded Fontina
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup Gorgonzola crumbles
1/2 lb. crumbled Italian sausage, fully cooked
fresh parsley, chopped

Method:
Make and cut the gnocchi as directed.
Prepare your double-boiler by bringing a saucepan of water to a simmer.
Meanwhile, in a heat-safe bowl that will fit into the pan without touching the bottom, combine the cheeses and cream.
Place the bowl over the simmering water and whisk until it becomes a smooth, uniform sauce, free of lumps.
Cook the gnocchi in salted boiling water: remember, when the first one floats, they’re ready!
Meanwhile, warm the Italian sausage in a deep sauté pan. Add the sauce to the pan, then the cooked gnocchi, and toss.
To serve, spoon into shallow bowls and garnish with fresh parsley.
To reheat any leftover sauce, use the double-boiler method, whisking until smooth and heated.
