Gnocchi Mac & Cheese

If you don't like mac and cheese, I don't think you're a true American. But with the calories and fat mac and cheese brings, it is something we eat on occasion. I've seen so many "this is the best mac and cheese recipe ever" all over Pinterest but this one stuck out to me. Gnocchi, if you haven't heard of it, is a potato based pasta, kind of like a mini dumpling. And it is delicious!! This pseudo mac and cheese is one of the most delicious things I've eaten, and I can't wait for you to try it!

Ingredients- makes 4 servings
1 lb gnocchi
2 tbsp butter
2 tsp minced garlic
1 tbsp  flour
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup shredded Colby Jack cheese
Salt and white pepper to taste
*Optional: Parmesan cheese or basil to top

1. Prepare gnocchi according to package directions. 
2. Drain and place gnocchi in a single-layer in a greased 1-1/2 quart shallow baking dish
3. Melt butter in a medium pan and stir in garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
4. Whisk in flour until it thickens and bubbles, then whisk in milk. Continue to whisk mixture and cook until slightly thickened, about 3-5 minutes.
5. Add cheese and stir until melted
6. Season with salt and pepper
7. Pour the cheese mixture over the gnocchi
8. Sprinkle with basil or Parmesan cheese
9. Bake at 375 for 25 minutes
