Cheese gnocchi with spinach and walnuts


250g essential Waitrose spinach
500g gnocchi
75g essential Waitrose lighter mature cheese, grated
25g essential Waitrose parmigiano reggiano, grated
200g essential Waitrose half fat British crème fraîche
½ tsp essential Waitrose english mustard
grating of fresh nutmeg
25g walnut pieces


1. Preheat the grill to high. In a colander, pour boiling water over the spinach until it has wilted. Cool a little, squeeze out the excess liquid; set aside.

2. Cook the gnocchi in boiling water for 2 minutes, until they float, then drain. Mix the two cheeses.

3. Put the crème fraîche and mustard in a pan over a low heat. Stir in three-quarters of the cheese and heat gently until you have a smooth sauce (about 3 minutes). Season, gently stir in the nutmeg, gnocchi and spinach, and heat through.

4. Grill in a heatproof dish, topped with the remaining cheese, for 3-4 minutes until golden. Top with nuts and grill for 2 minutes.
