  2. Cook gnocchi in salted water according to directions. Drain and return to pot and reduce heat to low.
  3. Pour milk over the gnocchi and stir well. Add the brie slowly, stirring gently to encourage melting. Add figs, salt and pepper, and use a spatula to scrape the entire mixture into a small casserole dish or an 8" pie pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until bubbly.

We just made this dish and used nectarines instead of figs… was delicious! The nutty brie with the sweet fruit is dynamite. If this is mac and cheese’s older sister I cant wait to meet their mom!

This recipe is so incredibly delicious yet so easy! A word to the health conscious though, if you substitute Trader Joe’s lite brie, be sure and use milk with fat, and vice versa.
