Burnt Sage Butter Sauce for Gnocchi

Total Time
Prep 0 mins
Cook 7 mins

Very quick and easy to make to accompany my (homemade) gnocchi recipe. To serve, divide gnocchi among bowls, spooning over burnt butter sauce. Sprinkle with 1 cup (80g) grated/shaved parmesan cheese (optional).


  1. Cook chopped butter until melted in a large frying pan, then add sage leaves. Cook butter and sage leaves, swirling pan often, for 4-5min or until sage leaves are crisp and butter deep nut-brown colour. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Add gnocchi to frying pan and toss to coat in burnt sage butter.

Wow! These were very good and very rich! It was the first time I had ever had gnocchi without a red sauce. I used sage leaves from my garden. I followed the instructions exactly and added shaved parmesan to the finished dish. We would probably have more often, but I don't think our old arteries could take it.
