  1. Do you have a recipe for Gnocci Profumati ala Pizza and Brew?

  2. Well, I don’t know exactly how Pizza & Brew (a New York Italian joint) does it, but this is the closest recipe I can find. This is assuming you have already-made gnocchi.

    A little warning: this is not from an American website, so the metric system is in full effect.


    Preparation time: 10 min.
    Cooking time: 15 min.

    – 450 grams of potato dumplings
    – 200 grams of Taleggio (an Italian cheese)
    – 1 cup cream
    – Stem of chives
    – Salt
    – Black pepper

    1. Cook the gnocchi in boiling salted water, then drain when they rise to the surface.
    2. In the meantime, melt the cheese in pieces in a saucepan with the cream. Then add the chives to season. Add gnocchi when cheese is completely melted and mixed with the cream. Mix in salt and a good ground black pepper. Buon appetito!
