Butter and sage gnocchi – Gnocchi al burro e salvia

Simple, surprisingly tasty and easy to make. You can’t go wrong with this one. When I prepare gnocchi I usually serve them with different sauces and I always start with this one because of its delicate flavor, followed by tomato sauce, Bolognese sauce and pesto.

Ingredients:

Basic potato gnocchi recipe
butter
fresh sage
fresh ground Parmesan

Instructions:

1. Boil the gnocchi as directed in the basic gnocchi recipe.
2. In the meantime warm a tablespoon of butter per serving in a skillet with a few fresh sage leaves.
3. Be careful not to burn the butter.
4. When the gnocchi are ready drain them well with a slotted spoon and place in a colander to loose the excess water.
5. Quickly place them in a serving bowl, add the melted butter and mix well. Sprinkle the gnocchi with fresh Parmesan cheese and serve.

Notes:

This simple method is a favorite for many. If you have fresh sage on hand it is a must.

    Someone pointed me to your blog on food52.com. I lived in Italy last year, in Perugia, and Gnocchi with butter and sage was my favorite dish of all the wonderful things I tried. I’ve missed it so! I’m going to try this. Thanks for this website, I will probably cook my way through everything in hopes of remembering my time in Italy.
