Ingredients: 1 package gnocchi (or roughly 2 cups) 5 tablespoons unsalted butter 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1 1/2 cups whole milk 1 large yellow onion, sliced thinly 2 teaspoons granulated sugar 1 tablespoon Worcestershire 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh thyme ( + more for garnish) 1/2 cup beef broth 1 cup mozzarella, shredded salt and pepper to tastePreheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large skillet, melt two tablespoons butter over medium-high heat. Once melted, add the onions. Let the onions saute for about two minutes. Next, add the sugar, Worcestershire, thyme, salt, and pepper. Continue to cook the onions for another minute or two and then add the beef broth. Scraping the bottom of the skillet making sure everything is well combined, turn the heat to simmer. Stir the onions to keep them from burning at the bottom of the skillet until golden brown about 20 minutes. Set aside once cooked. While the onions cook, bring a large pot full of water to a boil. Add the gnocchi and cook according to package instructions. Once the gnocchi has cooked, drain through a colander and add to a baking dish. In a saucepan, melt the remaining tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Next add the flour and whisk until a roux forms about a minute. Pour in the milk and whisk until thickened about five minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. To assemble the casserole, evenly place the onions over the gnocchi. Next, pour the white sauce over the onions followed by mozzarella. Baked for about 10 to 15 minutes or until cheese has turned golden brown. Garnish with fresh thyme.
