  • 1 package gnocchi (you can find this in the pasta isle or make it fresh)
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • handful of sage leaves
  • freshly grated parmesan
  • salt, to taste, for cooking gnocchi water


  • Add 3 cups of water to the pan, bring to a boil and cook according to the package, mine was 3 minutes.
  • Drain gnocchi and place in a bowl.
  • In the same pan, add the butter heat on medium heat, cook for a few minutes, add sage leaves and cook until they get crispy, one to two minutes, take them out of the butter and let the butter get browned, watch it so it doesn't burn.
  • Add in the gnocchi back in the pan and sauté for a minute or so, use a spoon and put the butter on the gnocchi.
  • Remove the gnocchi from the pan along with butter and dish up in bowls. Add the crispy sage and grate some parmesan on top. Enjoy.
