Recipe by Kookaburra
READY IN: 15mins




  • TO COOK GNOCCHI Bring a large pan of water to the boil.
  • Add salt.
  • Add gnocchi.
  • Cook gnocchi just until it floats to the top- DO NOT OVERCOOK, this will only take a couple of minutes.
  • Drain and divide gnocchi into serving bowls.
  • TO COOK SAUCE Start preparing the sauce while the water for the gnocchi is coming to the boil.
  • Melt butter in a small frypan over a medium heat.
  • When the butter starts to foam, tip the pan often to check the colour of the butter.
  • As soon as the butter begins to take on a golden brown tinge, add the garlic and sage.
  • Give the mixture a stir, then remove the pan immediately from the heat.
  • The sage and garlic will continue to cook in the heat of the butter and the pan, while you drain the gnocchi and divide it into serving bowls.
  • Spoon the burnt butter sauce over the gnocchi, distributing the pieces of garlic and sage evenly.
  • Using a spoon, turn the gnocchi over lightly in each bowl so that it is evenly covered with sauce.
  • Sprinkle over parmesan cheese and serve immediately.
