Gnocchi make a great alternative to pasta and are actually quite easy to make. If you don't have time, buy some good quality ready-made ones from the supermarket or deli and just add the fresh Taleggio fondue sauce! Taleggio is an amazing cheese from the Val di Taleggio in Bergamo, northern Italy. This cheese has a P.D.O. denomination and so must be produced according to specific EU guidelines, which determine both the area of manufacture as well and the very strict production standards.
