Prep 10 min
Total 40 min
Makes 6 Servings



1/4 cup
2% milk
1/2 cup
grated parmesan
fresh ground black pepper, to taste
freshly ground nutmeg, to taste
1/4 tsp
454-g pkg
fresh or frozen gnocchi
2 tbsp


  • Position oven racks in top third and centre of oven. Preheat to 400F.
  • Whisk mascarpone with milk in a shallow oven-safe saucepan (wide enough to hold
    gnocchi in a single layer) and set over medium. When mixture starts to bubble, 1 to 2 min, turn off heat. Add 1/4 cup parmesan and whisk until it melts.
  • Grind black pepper and nutmeg over cheese mixture. Sprinkle with salt and set aside.
  • Cook gnocchi in a medium pot according to package directions, about 2 min for fresh or 12 min for frozen. Drain gnocchi and stir into cheese mixture until coated. Spread out into an even layer.
  • Stir remaining parmesan with bread crumbs and sprinkle over gnocchi.
  • Bake in centre of oven until bubbly, about 15 min. Adjust heat to broil. Broil in top third of oven until top turns dark golden, about 2 min. Let stand for at least 10 min before serving.
