Ethereal Gnocchi, Rich Sauce

Great gnocchi are ethereally light, but these airy pillows are at their most delicious when napped with earthy or rich sauces. Brown butter and sage is classic; try sautéing breadcrumbs and gnocchi in butter and finishing with a sprinkle of Parmesan, or pairing sage with olive oil, a squeeze of lemon juice, and pecorino. Meyer lemon gnocchi, with lemon in the gnocchi themselves and in the accompanying butter sauce, is the go-to recipe for a couple of hounds.

Others like a tomato cream sauce, Gorgonzola and walnuts, or duxelles with pancetta or prosciutto. As an alternative to potato gnocchi, some are fans of ricotta gnocchi. For a very special dish, try truffled gnocchi with peas and chanterelles, which capeanne calls “truly addictive.”
