How To Make Sage Butter Gnocchi
- Start by cooking the gnocchi according to the package directions. This usually means boiling water and then cooking them for about 5 minutes. Once they are cooked, drain and set aside.
- While the gnocchi is cooking melt the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.
- Mix in the torn sage leaves with the butter and let it cook for about 5 minutes. You really want the sage to flavor the butter, but not burn. So turn it down a little if necessary.
- After the gnocchi are cooked, toss them with the sage butter and Parmesan cheese. Stir until everything comes together and the cheese is melted.
- Taste and season with salt and pepper to taste and mix in the pine nuts.
