Quatro Formaggi sauce

Quatro Formaggi sauce

This is a classic 4 cheese sauce that goes best with Gnocchi in my opinion but is great with Tagliattelle or Fettuccine as well, it makes each little gnocchi glisten and say eat me! It’s very rich and is one of the all time classic Italian pasta sauces that takes about 15 minutes from start to table. ¬†There is a Gnocchi recipe here or you can buy the pre made gnocchi from Woolies or a good Italian deli. Checkers has a really good selection of cheeses so for Fontina, which is sometimes hard to find try Checkers.(Good for 4 hungry people)

What you need

1 cup mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (its about 45 grams)
75g Gorgonzola cheese
1 cup grated Fontina cheese (can be substituted with another white cheese)
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup milk
625g Gnocchi

The process

Put your Gnocchi on to cook according to the instructions on the pack or prepare your Gnocchis first according to this gnocchi recipe.

In a pot on a medium high heat, add the wine and allow to boil for about 3 minutes to reduce by about 1/3.

Reduce heat to medium, add the mascarpone and stir to a smooth shiny texture. Now add the rest of the cheeses and the milk and stir until all of the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth.

Add your sauce to the cooked gnocchi and toss to coat each piece with the sauce.

Grind a little pepper over the top and you are in heaven I tell you.
