Dueling Gnocchi

A couple of weeks ago we made this dish with some homemade sausage from a class we took at a local Italian market .  This was requested  by our son following his ACL surgery.  The recipe is from a few years ago, but always a favorite. How can you not take request for dinner when some has just had surgery, and knows he has a long road to recovery. His basketball season was cut short and there will be no spring baseball.

Butter and Sage Sauce (or Thyme)

1 16 oz package of Gnocchi
1/2 cup butter
9 fresh sage leaves, torn into pieces or 2 Tbsp. dried
4 Tbsp Parmesan Cheese

Heat butter and sage in saucepan over low heat 5 to 7 minutes.  Prepare Gnocchi and add to butter sauce, coating well. (We heated the Gnocchi up in frying pan with olive oil, but you can cook to package directions)  Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese and enjoy immediately.

*  Note that this is called dueling gnocchi because we made two batches of sauce – one with Sage and one with Thyme leaves.  Our son loves them both!
