LOOKING for: Rich & creamy pasta sauce

We have decided to do a first course of pasta for Easter. It's just going to be a small serving but I wanted to make something rich and/or creamy, with lots of flavor.

Please share your favorite recipe.

Many thanks, sue

I don't have a specific recipe but Gnocchi with a Gorgonzola sauce is an amazing first course. I use Lydia's recipe for the Gnocchi and my Gorgonzola sauce is really just an Alfredo with Gorgonzola instead of Parm.

You could use a ricotta based gnocchi if you wanted it a little lighter...

Toss w/the cheese mixture. Pour into a large baking dish (or you could put in individual ramekins) & dot with the butter. Bake in a preheated 450 oven for 7-15 minutes or until bubbly.~~Peeling the Wild ONion
