Gnocchi Mac & Cheese
Ahhhh mac and cheese. Those mere words stir up feelings of comfort...home....the food you loved as a kid. If you asked a 100 people what their favorite comfort food was, I'm guessing close to half would say mac and cheese. I'm sure meatloaf and mashed potatoes are right up there too. Why is that the combination of cheese and pasta can make our mouths water? I'm all about trying different kinds of mac and cheese recipes and this one was no exception. I saw this one on Noble Pig's site and knew it would be in my oven. The gnocchi get's a little puffy in the oven and the cheese get's a little crunchy. It's heavenly. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Combine Gruyere and fontina, then add by the handful to milk mixture, stirring until melted before adding the next handful. Pour sauce over gnocchi and sprinkle with Parmigiano-Reggiano over top.
