Garlic Butter Gnocchi

Ingredients
  1. 1 stick unsalted butter 4 ounces/8 tablespoons
  2. 6 cloves garlic peeled, lightly smacked
  3. 2 large fresh sage leaves, smacked and scrunched, plus 1 extra for finishing
  4. 1 pound fresh frozen, or vacuum packed gnocchi
  5. 2 cups grated Parmesan Asiago, Romano, or Grana Padano cheese, 1/3 cup reserved

Instructions
  • In a large, heavy-bottomed non-stick skillet, melt the butter over low heat. Add the lightly smashed garlic cloves, smack and scrunch the sage leaves a few times, then add those to the melted butter and swirl. Leave the pan over low heat, swirling occasionally.
  • While the garlic and sage infuse the butter, bring a large pot of water to a hard boil. Salt the water, then cook the gnocchi according to package directions. Drain.
