Tasty Tuesday

Look at me branching out and doing a recipe post (well, besides cake batter cookies).  I have been cooking and baking a lot more often recently and have loved every second of it.

Laura from Beauty and the Beard shared this amazing recipe on her blog awhile back, and I'm pretty sure that I drooled while reading her post.


This is my version.  No need to post the steps because Laura already did that fabulously well. I only had a couple changes because I was being cheap at the store and using what I had (i.e. lazy), but I'm pretty sure it tasted just as great (in my humble opinion).   Here are my changes in bold:

- A glass baking dish
-1 lb of gnocchi
-2 Tbsp butter
-2-3 tsp minced garlic--lazy route
-1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
-3/4 cup non-fat milk
-1/2 cup gruyere-swiss cheese
- 1/2 cup 4 Cheese Italian mix
- 1/2 cup 5 Cheese Italian mix
-1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper
- Sprinkle basil seasoning on top--cheap route

I also may have put in generous 1/2 cups of cheese when the recipe called for it. That's just the inner Wisconsin girl in me though. I made this last week with a friend who only had almond milk, and it tasted just as great as the first time I made it in case that is the milk you prefer.

Thanks for the recipe, Laura, and be sure to stop by her blog for step by step instructions!
