Pumpkin Gnocchi in a Brown Butter and Sage Sauce

Pumpkin Gnocchi in Brown Butter and Sage

The recipe for the pumpkin gnocchi easily made enough for two meals and now that I had had my pumpkin gnocchi in a gorgonzola sauce it was time for a classic, pumpkin gnocchi in brown butter and sage sauce. It constantly surprises me that something so simple as a browned butter sauce can be so good and yet it is! Even better, is that the sage fries up nice and crispy in the butter and the pair are a match made in heaven. Combine that with some sweet pumpkin gnocchi and you have an amazing meal that takes almost no effort to make. I like to add a hit of lemon juice at the end to brighten things up a bit.

This is one of our favorite things to make. The softness of the "dough" is often intimidating, but for naught. Thanks for your version. Can't wait to try!!!

Gorgeous and delicious. These are truly some of my favorite flavors, but I usually enjoy them in ravioli. Have only made gnocci once, but would love to try this.

Oh my! These are some of the most beautiful gnocchi I have every seen. To me, there's nothing better than pairing gnocchi with sage and brown butter.

I'm drooling over this one. REminds me of this pumpkin ravioli I had with browned butter and crispy sage at Bonefish over the holidays.
