Recipe: Gnocchi with Sausage, Brown Butter and Sage

This recipe is a treat for gnocchi fans everywhere.  Theres many recipes and variations of gnocchi with brown butter and sage but I wanted one with a little more zip.  I incorporated hot Italian sausage into this traditional favorite. If heat isn’t a favorite, one can use sweet sausage instead.  I left this comfort classic elevated and it certainly will satisfy ones taste buds.  Make homemade gnocchi by using the recipe that can be found here.

  1. In a medium skillet set to medium heat, add sausage (removed from casing) in quarter in dollops and fry until browned and cooked through.
  2. In a large skillet set to medium heat, add butter, melt and allow to heat for 1 minute. Add gnocchi to the skillet and fry until golden on all sides. Add sage and let the butter change color to a light brown. Work the gnocchi and sage around with a wooden spoon. Lower heat a little if needed. Be careful NOT to burn the butter.
  3. Add the pre-cooked sausage to the gnocchi, butter and sage. Heat until sausage is hot.
  4. Plate the gnocchi with sage and sausage. Spoon up any left over butter in the skillet and drizzle over the top of the gnocchi. Finish the dish off with a nice sprinkle of pecorino romano or parmesan.
