Roast butternut and sage gnocchi

Sweet butternut with nutty burnt butter, crispy sage and loads of parmesan: this is perfect, meat-free comfort food. Make it with store-bought gnocchi for a quick, midweek meal.

Serves: 4 people


1 large peeled and cubed butternut
2 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves of crushed garlic
Salt and black pepper
500g store-bought gnocchi gnocchi
100g butter
6-8 fresh sage leaves
grated, for serving parmesan


Preheat the oven to 180°C. Arrange butternut cubes on a baking tray, drizzle with olive oil and garlic and season. Roast for 30 minutes. Cook gnocchi in boiling salted water for 4-6 minutes. Drain, toss with 10g of butter and leave aside. Remove cooked butternut from the oven and toss with the gnocchi. For the burnt butter sauce, melt butter in a saucepan until brown and bubbly. Add the sage, remove from heat and drizzle over gnocchi. Serve hot with grated Parmesan and black pepper.
