Recipe

Prepare Ingredients:

Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil over high heat. Pick sage leaves, discarding stems. Medium dice cucmber. Slice cherry tomatoes in half.

Cook Gnocchi:

Add the gnocchi to the pot of boiling water. Give one gentle stir, wait until the gnocchi all float to the surface of the water, and then cook for 1-2 minutes, or until tender. Drain gnocchi thoroughly, shaking off as much water as possible first.

When the gnocchi is cooked, transfer to the pan with browned butter. Cook, 1-2 minutes, add half the parmesan, season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir to thoroughly combine.

You Plate It:

In a salad bowl combine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber and walnuts with a drizzle of olive oil and serve on the side. Divide gnocchi between bowls and top with remaining parmesan.
