2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 2-quart casserole dish; set aside.

Cook gnocchi according to package directions; drain. Keep warm.

Melt 3 tablespoons butter in 4-quart saucepan until sizzling; stir in flour. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 1 minute or until smooth and bubbly. Stir in milk, salt, mustard and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low; add cheese. Cook, stirring occasionally, 5-7 minutes or until cheese is melted and sauce is thickened. Add cooked gnocchi; mix well. Pour into prepared casserole dish.
