Sunday 2/8

Okay, I will let you know a few changes I am making to this one. Just for $$ sakes.
Bacon instead of prosciutto.
Sometimes Meijer has the 3 cheese blend in the speciality case try that one along with the fontina.

I am also serving a plain salad with this.

Whisk in the flour for 1 minute, then whisk in the milk; season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cook until thickened, 5 minutes. Stir in the fontina and asiago until melted.4. Preheat the broiler. Drain the gnocchi and place in a casserole dish. Stir in the leeks and cheese sauce and top with the parmigiano-reggiano. Broil the casserole until browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Top with the prosciutto.
