My grandparents have been visiting from New Mexico for the last three weeks. We were surely sad to see them go, but we celebrated our last night together with a delicious buffet. I tried this recipe that I'd been dying to make, and it was so worth it! It made a great side that wasn't too rich.
16 oz package gnocchi
3 TBSP butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 TBSP flour
1 cup half and half
8 oz shredded Provolone cheese, divided
4 oz shredded Swiss cheese, divided
2 (6 oz) cans crabmeat
1/4 cup Panko crumbs
Preheat oven to 350. Cook the gnocchi according to package; drain and set aside.
Melt butter in a medium skillet. Add garlic and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in flour and cook 1 minute. Add half & half and 3/4 of the cheeses; stir until melted.
Stir together gnocchi, cheese sauce, and crab in a medium-sized shallow baking dish. Top with remaining cheese and Panko crumbs. Bake 30 minutes.
