Baked Gnocchi with Smoked Turkey and Blue Cheese

cook 20 mins
  • 750 g (1 1/2 lb) fresh gnocchi
  • 200 g (7 oz) quark cheese or extra-light cream cheese
  • 125 g (4 oz) strong blue cheese, such as Gorgonzola piccante or Stilton
  • 2 tablespoons snipped chives
  • 200 g (7 oz) cooked smoked turkey, cut into strips
  • 200 g (7 oz) frozen chopped spinach, defrosted
  • 2 spring onions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • black pepper
  • Preheat the oven to 220°C (425°F), Gas Mark 7. Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to the boil and cook the gnocchi for 2 minutes until cooked through, or according to the packet instructions. Drain well, then tip back into the saucepan.
  • Meanwhile, gently warm the quark or cream cheese, blue cheese and chives in a frying pan, then season with pepper. Remove from the heat, stir in the smoked turkey and spinach and gently fold the sauce into the cooked gnocchi.
  • Scrape the gnocchi and sauce into an ovenproof dish, scatter with the spring onions and place in the oven for 15–18 minutes until golden and bubbling.
  • Serve the baked gnocchi with a crisp green leaf salad and crusty bread, if liked.
