Gnocchi Mac & Cheese

Potato Gnocchi stirred together with a luscious cheesy béchamel to create the richest and decadent Mac & Cheese you can imagine!


  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Cook Time : 35 min
  • Ready Time : 55 min




  • 2 lbs. gnocchi (homemade (link to: http://www.joyofkosher.com/recipe/cilantro-pesto-gnocchi/) or purchased)
  • 5 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole or 2% milk
  • 2 tsp Dijon or spicy mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  • 1/2 cup cubed American cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan
  • 4 Tbsp bread crumbs


  1. Prepare the gnocchi by making this homemade version on Joy of Kosher or boil the purchased variety by following package directions. If you are making your own gnocchi, you should double the recipe. Place gnocchi in a casserole dish.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  3. Make the béchamel: In a large saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons of the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and stir with a wooden spoon until thick, around 30 seconds.
  4. Add the milk, mustard, salt, pepper and nutmeg and stir until bubbling and thick, around 5-7 minutes.
  5. Add the cheddar, mozzarella and American cheese and stir to combine.
  6. Pour the sauce over the gnocchi.
  7. Combine the parmesan and bread crumbs and sprinkle over the gnocchi and béchamel. Dollop the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter over the crumbs.
  8. Baked uncovered for 30-35 minutes, until the top is golden brown. Enjoy!

    If you substitute arrowroot powder for the flour and use crumbs from gluten-free bread, this is a great gluten-free recipe. It could easily be modified to be unleavened, as well.
