Potato Gnocchi with Sage Brown-Butter Sauce
Though you need a decent chunk of time to make gnocchi, it's really not hard to do. The sage brown-butter sauce, on the other hand, comes together so quickly, you can prepare it in the few minutes it takes to cook the gnocchi.
The pay-off is worth the effort. The soft gnocchi and the nutty, toasted butter make for deeply satisfying comfort food. You can add toasted hazelnuts, walnuts, or pecans for a textural contrast and even more rich, nutty flavor, but the dish is simple and delicious without them.
