How to Make Pumpkin Gnocchi in Brown Butter Sage Sauce

Start with a pan and melt a little butter.

Allow the butter to melt in your pan. Put your stovetop on medium high. Watch it as it turns from a yellow color into a beautiful brown color. Be sure not to burn it. As soon as it becomes brown, remove it from the heat.

Then you will add in your lemon juice minced garlic, and sage leaves. For the sage leaves, be sure to chiffonade them. To do this, roll them up and then run your knife through them to create ribbons.

Once you add your lemon juice and sage to the brown butter, then throw in your pumpkin gnocchi. Use as many pieces as you want — we used about 2 cups worth.

Season with salt and pepper and let the gnocchi crisp up a bit.

Once it is done, plate it and then top with Parmesan cheese, and another splash of lemon juice for one of the most amazing meals you have ever eaten.
