Allow the white wine to boil down almost completely while stirring & then add the remaining ingredients to the pan, add 800 grams of gnocchi (from the refrigerated section) & pour in 200 milliliters of cream.

Tip: As an alternative to white wine, you can also use stock or broth to deglaze if you want to avoid alcohol.

Stir all the ingredients well, bring the gnocchi with mushrooms to a boil and then remove from the heat and pour into a suitable casserole dish. Sprinkle everything with some grated cheese & put in the preheated oven (relatively high) for a few minutes to gratinate.
