This simple pan fried gnocchi comes together in under 30 minutes and is the perfect weeknight pasta dish. It gets its flavour by browning the butter first, which gives a really toasty and nutty aroma to the final dish. Use store-bought gnocchi for ease or homemade if you are feeling adventurous!

Ingredients for pan fried gnocchi
Step 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the gnocchi according to package directions.

Step 2

To a skillet over medium heat add the butter. Continue cooking until the butter turns a golden brown. Watch it closely as it will go from brown butter to burnt butter very quickly.

Step 3

Lower the heat and add the sage. Continue cooking until the sage is crispy, about 2 minutes.
