1 pound gnocchi
1 cup frozen peas
1/3 cup heavy cream
6 ounces gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
8 ounces mascarpone cheese
1/4 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
freshly ground black pepper

Cook gnocchi according to package directions. Add peas when there is 1-2 minutes of cooking time left.
Heat heavy cream, gorgonzola and mascarpone together in a small pot over medium high heat, stirring frequently. Lower heat once it starts simmering and keep cooking until it thickens.
Drain gnocchi and add to pot with sauce. Add Pecorino Romano, pepper and crushed red pepper. Stir until combined. Divide into 4 bowls and top with a little more cheese and pepper, if desired.
