As a major cheese lover, I can't believe I am even going to bring myself to type this, but this recipe just had too much cheese. The scallions bring a really great flavour to this dish, but we easily could have cut down on the fontina cheese. I will try this dish again, but next time, I will use 6 oz of fontina cheese and 1/2 cup cream. On a side note, try a bite before adding additional parmesan cheese on top!!
This was truly decadent! Oh my gosh it was like something out of a wonderful restuarant! The only thing is that I would cut the butter amount in half I think it is really too much. It kind of pooled on top of the sauce and separated a little. I was a little short on fontina so I upped the parmesan to 1/4 cup. Sadly I had no fresh basil so I had to use dried. Still good though but I can't imagine how much better it would have been with fresh!
Such an easy recipe. Had trouble finding Fontina cheese so settled for a cheese labeled as "Dutch soft cheese." Close enough for me. To cut down fat I used low fat milk instead of cream but it was still creamy enough for my taste.
It was great! really tasty.. I added one box of frozen spinach (thawed and REALLY WELL DRAINED) and a little bit of lemon juice right at the end. My husband suggested we put pancetta and mushrooms next time.. a GREAT recipe to work with.
I hate giving this recipe a three rating, but I felt that it needed a little perfecting. I made my sauce the same way as I would for mac and cheese. That means cutting the butter amount in half, adding flour to make a roux, then adding the liquid, stirring until thickened and finally the cheese. In this case, I used fat free half and half and found I needed more than suggested. Fontina is one of my all time favorite cheeses, so I was thrilled to have a reason to buy it. I shredded it instead of cubing and probably used a bit more. I also added some seasonings to the sauce. This was a great start to a comforting and delicious dish. Thanks!
very quick and easy to prepare. the delightful creamy rich cheese sauce goes well over broccoli or any veggie too---easy way to feed kids! shallots give a wonderful flavor; fontina cheese---any day any time w/ anything! very filling dish with gnocchi---will try penne or bowtie pasta next time! thanks for sharing!
This is straight up comfort food! I made my own gnocchi bc I dont like pre-made gnocchi. I did twist the recipe a little bit I added garlic and sage to the shallots and took off the basil. This was delicious! I strongly recommend adding fresh minced garlic; it makes a huge difference!
