Gnocchi with Gorgonzola Cream sauce...sides?

I'm making potato gnocchi with Gorgonzola cream sauce tomorrow night for dinner, for my cousins that we're staying with. DH and I can just have that, usually with sliced tomatoes and a bit of balsamic syrup.

Cousins have never had gnocchi before. I'm hoping they love 'em - I do a pretty good job - but you never know. (They do like Gorgonzola cheese, which helps.)

In case they hate them, or don't love them, or find a plate of just them overwhelming/palate fatiguing, I was going to fix a few sides, so they could trade off.

Other than sliced tomatoes, I can't think of a thing that would go well with them. Suggestions?
