this dish, they included a package of gnocchi. I decided it was time to test out another use for the tasty little balls of dough. This was fantastic and my family finished off every last bite.
2 (12 ounce) packaged potato gnocchi (I only used one, but made enough butter sauce as if I were using two packages. There was a lot of sauce, but I like butter!)
1/4 cup butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp dried sage (I used 5 fresh leaves finely chopped)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the gnocchi pasta, and cook until the float to the surface, 2 to 3 minutes; drain.
Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook until the garlic has softened and is beginning to turn golden brown, about 4 minutes. Stir in the sage and salt for a few seconds, then add the cooked gnocchi. Toss gently with 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese and the pepper. Sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese to serve.
