  • 125 g Butter melted
  • 1 handful of sage leaves
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 small mild onion - about 1/3 cup can sub for 2 medium spring onion
  • 1 kg gnocchi
  • red pepper flakes and parmesan to garnish


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C
  • Give all the ingredients but the gnocchi, the red pepper flakes and parmesan into a food processor, mixer or blender and mix until you have a smooth butter mix
  • Give the gnocchi into a large pan and add the sage butter mix. Stir through until the gnocchi are completely covered in butter
  • Put in the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until the gnocchi are soft
  • Garnish with parmesan and red pepper flakes and serve immediately


The gnocchi get more firm again once they cool but you can easily heat them up in a pan on the stove top, in the oven or in the microwave. I'd suggest this order of priority.
Serve with a glass of white wine - I swear it's a game changer!
