Creamed Peas and Potato Gnocchi

With spring in the air I got to thinking about peas. My Grandparents would make fresh creamed peas and potatoes from the garden when I was a kid. But it is just to soon for fresh from the garden but I did have frozen peas and potato gnocchi. The sauce is rich and creamy with the taste of sweet milk.

Cook:

Ingredients

4TBL
butter, cold
1/4 c
flour
1 c
whole milk
1/2 c
mascarpone cheese
1 1/2 c
frozen peas
1 pkg
shelf stable potato gnocchi
parsley (optional)
grated romano

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Using a sauce pan; Melt butter over med heat. Add flour and stir creating a rue. Careful not to burn. Add milk slowly whisking until smooth. Keep gently whisking until temp is up to a slow simmer. Add mascarpone and continue to whisk until smooth. Taste for seasoning of salt/pepper and parsley. Turn burner down to low and watch not to stick to bottom of pot.
2
Following the directions on your pkg of gnocchi cook as directed. As the gnocchi is cooked using a slotted spoon directly add cooked gnocchi to sauce when completed; add frozen peas. Cover and let set for apx 10 to 15 min. just until peas get hot. Sometimes I like a thick white sauce and sometimes I don't, so for a thinner sauce add small amounts gnocchi water to sauce to achieve desired consistency. Serve immediately top with grated romano.
