butter sage sweet potato gnocchi;

These little pillow puffs are deeelicious!  But they do take a long time!  For those of you who have ever tried to make gnocchi before, I’ll bet you already know this.  But somehow I always manage to forget, especially because the ingredient list is so minimal, I think they’re a breeze to make!  But when you boil them in multiple batches, and run out of space on your cutting board to continue rolling and cutting them up, it gets a little tedious and you remember just how long they take to make.

So these bad boys will take you close to an hour from start to finish.  But onwards and upwards!  On the bright side, if you’ve got the time on a weekend, you can invest some time upfront and have everything all set to go for later in the week for a quicker meal!

I actually really loved these paired with some roasted garlic chicken sausage.  I think the gnocchi could have done with a little more salt in the butter sauce, but instead, paired with the salty sausage, a bite of sausage and gnocchi was really really on point.  Plus, added bonus, if you’re gonna spend all this time on the side dish, at least the main protein is a snap to heat up!

My favorite part about these, despite all the effort that goes into the gnocchi themselves, is those bits of crispy sage.  I’ve had a sage butter sauce before where the whole leaves are crispy and you get that nice crackle of buttery goodness, and while it’s always amazing, I find that the small little ribbons are (1) easier to fry up and get to that consistency, and (2) make me feel less bad about the mouthful of butter I just ate in one bite.  Do note that the crispness kinda flops away upon reheating these, but all the flavors are still there!
