The Godfather: Part III – Gorgonzola Gnocchi
The Godfather III is the epilogue of the two famous movies that have amused people from the entire world. What will the Corleone family do this time? The whole gang is back in the beloved New York, theatre of the previous events. But something is different now: everybody is trying hard to participate in the honest working world that surrounds them. Goodbye Mafia!
Happy? Don’t worry, it doesn’t last long. Crime, death and plots knock on their door and, in no time, the mafia is back. There’s opera, singing, the Bank of the Vatican and the Pope! Chaos reigns the scene, as usual, and Michael Corleone has a death sentence hanging over him.
Let’s not forget the excellent food scene of this notable family movie! When Andy Garcia deliciously teaches his cousin how to prepare Gnocchi. Hmmm, sexy and you can smell it from your homes. So don’t settle for the smell and cook it for your family; recreate the Italian family atmosphere. Well not everything, of course. Just stick to the food!
Gorgonzola Gnocchi Recipe
- 10 oz. boiled and peeled potatoes
- 4 oz. flour
- 4 oz. steamed and chopped spinach
- 2 eggs
- Salt and nutmeg
- 5 oz. Gorgonzola cheese
- 3/4 cups cream
- 2 oz. butter
- Mix the flour, the eggs, the mashed potatoes (still warm) and the spinach (be sure to have squeezed out all moisture) until you get a soft dough. Let stand for twenty minutes. Roll out the dough into long rolls about a 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 1-inch pieces. You can shape these by making little balls and pressing lightly with a fork or the thumb.
- Melt the chopped Gorgonzola cheese in the cream and butter over a low flame.
- Bring a pot of salted water to the boil. Gently drop in the gnocchi. When they float, remove with a slotted spoon and place in a warm serving dish.
- Pour the Gorgonzola sauce over the gnocchi, mix gently and serve at once.
