#123 Gnocchi in butter sage sauce

We made potato Gnocchi from scratch, and we learned that one of the best sauces to flavor the normally bland Gnocchi, is a simple sauce made with butter and sage. Luckily, I had fresh sage leaves, and so I used that instead of the dried variety. I pan fried the Gnocchi in butter until they are slightly brown. Depending on how you made it, sometimes Gnocchi can be really soft when heated again. So even if it was very tempting to stir it, I didn't until they are browned and firm enough again to retain it's shape. Then  I seasoned it and sprinkled thinly sliced fresh sage leaves. Delicious!



Gnocchi recipe here
2-3 tablespoons of butter
1 clove of garlic, minced
fresh sage leaves, thinly sliced
grated parmesan cheese

  1. In a pan, melt the butter, add the gnocchi, flip only once when they are slightly browned.
  2. Once the gnocchi are slightly browned on all sides, add the garlic, salt, pepper, parmesan cheese.
  3. Add more butter is desired. Sprinkle fresh sage leaves before serving.
