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.
Pumpkin Gnocchi in a Brown Butter and Sage Sauce
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 handful sage leaves
- 1/2 batch (about 1 pound) pumpkin gnocchi (cooked)
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- Melt the butter in a pan and cook it until it just starts to brown.
- Add the sage and fry until crispy, about 1 minute.
- Add the gnocchi and toss to coat.
- Remove from heat and mix in the lemon juice.

I love the crispy fried sage. Looks terrific!

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.
This looks so good! Definitely trying it sometime. Hope they turn out half as pretty as yours.
Yum! These look unbelievable! Love the green and orange color combo.
That looks delicious!!
Four servings, not eight. Otherwise, LOVE IT.
