  • 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 the remaining 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese to serve.

I loved this (5 stars!) but hubs not as much (3 stars), but then he's not a fan of gnocchi in the first place. I am, and I thought this sage-butter sauce was perfect with it. I didn't measure seasonings exactly, just to my own taste. What I'd love to try next time is to subtley brown the butter and use fresh sage. Great dish, however, just as is, keeping mind that seasoning measurements are useful as a guide, but don't have to be strictly adhered to! Read More

It's potato puffs with butter and cheese. It would be hard to go wrong but this is too blah. Next time maybe some chives or parsley... something but this as it is won't be making another appearance on my table. Read More

This was soooo good! I tripled the recipe and followed it exactly, except that I poured the sauce into a bowl with the gnocchi and tossed it because I had too much gnocchi for the pan. I've only had gnocchi with regular spaghetti sauce before and did not care for it, but I LOVED this! Great with a salad and garlic bread. Thanks for sharing! P.S. I used freshly minced garlic and I think that really adds a lot of flavor Read More

I cut the recipe in half and used 1 (16 oz) package of gnocchi. It fed my husband and I and two small portions for my toddlers. Read More

Quick & Easy what's not to love? I cut the recipe down and used 1 (16.8 oz) package of gnocchi. I also cooked some chicken tenders in the sauce and this became an instant hit at home. Read More

Yummy:) I used fresh sage and so had to guess at the quantities a little but it turned out great. I added sauteed zucchini at the end and served it as the main course. Very good. Very easy:) Read More

I needed a quick side dish for gnocchi one night and found this recipe. It was a big hit with my family. My husband loved it and said it reminded him of garlic cheese bread that you would find at a pizza place. Read More

Except for adding a little fresh sage with the dried I followed this recipe exactly. It was very good. Next time however I think I will try making it into a cream sauce as there is a popular gnocchi dish at a local Italian restaurant that I love that tastes very similar but it is creamy instead of buttery. Overall very nice flavor and I love the sage! Read More
