    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 4


    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.
