Gnocchi & mushrooms with garlic                           butter & sage

This is a simple but definitley special occasion dish, mainly because of the amount of butter used! It is worth it though & you can use fresh sage if you have any.


Serves 2 (easily doubled) Approx £1 per person


Prep time 5 minutes Cooking time 15 minutes



125g mushrooms, thickly sliced

250g Gnocchi (this should be about ½ a packet & you can freeze the rest!)

60g unsalted butter

2 cloves garlic, crushed

11/2 tsp dried sage


salt & pepper

Place a large frying pan over a medium heat & add the butter & about 1 tbsp oil.

After another minute add the mushrooms & cook until starting to colour.

Add the gnocchi & cook, stirring for about 8 minutes until the gnocchi is cooked through & soft. Make sure that it gets coated in the buttery sauce.
