I've reviewed other Trader Joe's Gnocchi such as Trader Joe’s Gnocchi alla Sorrentina and Trader Joe’s Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Butter and Sage (which for the record is my absolute favorite). So being unable to find my favorite flavor that I had purchased the week before, I picked up the Sorrentina and this one, Trader Joe's Gnocchi alla Gorgonzola.
Gorgonzola is similar to blue cheese, just an Italian variation. So I was curious by this one. I found this to be completely confusing flavor, but my husband loved it. If you like a gnocchi alfredo with the subtle taste of bleu cheese this is likely for you. Blue cheese of any variety has the potential to overwhelm any dish, but that was not the case here. It was enough blue cheese to muddle the alfredo flavor.
So what do you get for $2.99?
Here is the quick visual rundown of this product before I give my final thoughts at the end of this post:

Visually, it looks like gnocchi alfredo.
What does it actually taste like? Like I said before, this was has more mixed reviews in my household, but it depends on your attitude towards blue cheese. If you like it and would find it a great addition to an alfredo sauce, you'll probably enjoy this. It's not my favorite and I have a feeling this will have mixed feelings in a lot of kitchens. So give it a try or not.
