    Kookaburra's Note:

    Give us a cold, rainy day here at 'Avalon' and we'll say - gnocchi for lunch! It's quick, easy and tastes divine! We always keep some gnocchi on hand in the pantry - literally for a 'rainy day'! This recipe makes 2 generous serves.

      Add salt.
    3. 3
      Add gnocchi.

      Melt butter in a small frypan over a medium heat.
    8. 8
      When the butter starts to foam, tip the pan often to check the colour of the butter.
    9. 9
      As soon as the butter begins to take on a golden brown tinge, add the garlic and sage.
    10. 10
      Give the mixture a stir, then remove the pan immediately from the heat.
    11. 11
      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.
    12. 12
      Spoon the burnt butter sauce over the gnocchi, distributing the pieces of garlic and sage evenly.
    13. 13
      Using a spoon, turn the gnocchi over lightly in each bowl so that it is evenly covered with sauce.
    14. 14
      Sprinkle over parmesan cheese and serve immediately.

      I was looking for something different to go with roasted chicken and this was perfect! My husband actually even liked it! It definitely tasted better when first made though. (6)

      Loved it! I made some changes because I did not have sage. I used dried basil instead. Also, added smoked turkey sausage. It was very yummy! Thanks!

      Yummy! Didn't have a huge variety of fresh food in the fridge, so I couldn't make a elaborate sauce that needed lots of ingredients for this lonely pack of gnocchi. I wanted something filling and something that was quick and this was the recipe. It was perfect, I had to substitute the fresh sage leaves for some dried sage but otherwise kept to the recipe. The sauce was so delicious and gave the gnocchi a lot of flavour. Thank you Kookaburra
