  • 1 packet (17.5 oz) Potato Gnocchis
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 oz fresh mushrooms
  • 2 cups baby spinach, tightly packed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • 4 oz Mascarpone cheese
  • 2 cups CASTELLO® HAVARTI WILD GARLIC, shredded


  • Cook potato gnocchi following packet instructions. Drain and reserve.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly to prevent burning. Add mushroom and continue cooking until tender. Add spinach, mix and cook until wilted, about 2 -3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add butter and heavy cream to skillet. Stir until butter is melted. Add Parmesan, Mascarpone and 1/2 cup of Havarti wild garlic. Stir and let cook for about 3 - 5 minutes, or until all cheeses are melted and incorporated. Add gnocchi to the skillet and mix gently until well coated through, about 30 seconds.
  • Sprinkle with remaining Havarti wild garlic cheese on top and place skillet under the broiler for 2 to 3 minutes until cheese melts and start slightly browning.


I cooked the gnocchi and sauce at the same time, the timing it's just perfect.
Mascarpone cheese can be substituted with cream cheese.
