• 100g Sandhurst Persian style feta cheese
• 3 tbsp of Sandhurst olive oil
• Cracked pepper to taste

1. Put the water in a saucepan on high until it boils.
2. In a medium frypan warm milk on low heat – remove from heat then gently fold in the pesto
and olive oil.
3. Once the water starts boiling put the gnocchi in until it floats. Strain and pour the gnocchi in
the pesto mixed with the sundried tomatoes and pepper.
