Gnocchi with Sage Butter 

If someone put a potato and half an egg on a plate and told you it was your dinner, what would you think? A plate of gnocchi is exactly that. How can so little be so good and so filling? We had this recipe on our radar for at least two years. I’m so glad we finally made it; Gnocchi with Sage Butter based on a Gordon Ramsay recipe. 

Cook two medium potatoes. While they are still warm finely grate them. Add an egg and about 1/4 cup of flour. 

Mix and keep adding flour from another 1/2 cup until you have a dough. 

Flatten it to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into squares. Put a thumbprint into each one.  

Dust with more flour and leave to rest for 20 minutes. Add the gnocchi in batches to a pot of boiling water. They will float when they are ready. Fish them out and put aside. Fry them in butter until they start to brown. Add some chopped sage. Divide onto two plates.  Season and add grated Parmesan. 

We both loved the recipe. Just the thing for a cold rainy evening.
