This sauce takes only minutes to prepare and is just the thing for cooler evenings. Being very rich and decadent, it needs only a very simple accompaniment; we used our favourite La Molisana brand of gnocchi as we love the texture with the creamy cheese sauce. Bellisimo!

Cooking Time

--Smoky 3-Cheese Sauce:
45ml flour
30g butter
650ml milk
50g cheddar cheese, grated
100g Danish white, crumbled
50g Grana Padano, grated
2.5ml smoky paprika
10ml chopped parsley
salt, to taste


--La Molisana Gnocchi Patate :
--(Depending on appetite size and number of people, 2 or 3 packets)
In a saucepan on medium heat, melt butter and add flour; mix to make a paste.
Add milk, a little at a time, stirring constantly to remove any lumps. Once you have a smooth consistency, add the cheeses, spice and parsley.
Continue stirring, until all cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth and creamy. Do not allow sauce to boil as it will burn and spoil the flavour. Serve with gnocchi or any other pasta you desire.
