Sage and Brown Butter Gnocchi

What a better way to start September than with warm and appetizing sage and brown butter gnocchi. This delightful dish screams comfort food to me. Fall food should be comforting, don’t you agree?

Well, I genuinely love Autumn and everything that comes with the Fall season; Autumn foliage, tasty food and the fragrant air that smells more like cinnamon and spice.

Anyhow, I wanted to let you all knowthat I partnered with Minerva Dairy Butter once againto bring you one more amazing recipe.

Sage and Brown Butter Gnocchi

By the way, did you know that Minerva Dairy, is America’s oldest family-owned creamery? They just revamped their brand and packaging this year in honor of their 125th anniversary.

That is impressive, my friends. I absolutely love their story as well as working with a brand like Minerva Dairy.

So, after thinking of some wonderful and yummy ideas, this classic recipe popped in my head. It is sincerely loved all around the world and most importantly my family loves it.

It was a win-win situation here. I post homemade recipes that my family dearly likes.

Sage and Brown Butter Gnocchi

You will never find fake food whatsoever. I style food that I post here, of course. However, after each photoshoot, we devour food that I made. Every so often I need to heat it up but after doing this for nine years, they know the drill.

That being said, we enjoy gnocchi prepared with Minerva Butter. I love unsalted but for savory sauces or any other dishes, I use garlic and herbs to give a bit more character.


Sage and Brown Butter Gnocchi

It’s extremely delicious. Sea salt Minerva Dairy Butter is very tasty as well. I love smearing on my morning toast. I’m more of savory breakfast or brunch gal.

Nevertheless, I heartily hope youguys like these sage and brown butter gnocchi. They are reallyunbelievably tasty.

Happy Cooking!

Sage and Brown Butter Gnocchi
Yield: 4 Servings

Sage and Brown Butter Gnocchi

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

Sage and Brown Butter Gnocchi is easy, tasty a perfect dinner.


  • 1 pound potato gnocchi, you may make your own if you wish
  • 1 tsp. Lemon juice
  • Salt, and Black Pepper to taste

Butter Sage Sauce

  • 5 tablespoons Minerva Dairy garlic and herbs butter
  • 6 sage leaves, thinly sliced or leave them whole


  • 1/2 cup shaved or grated parmesan cheese


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over high heat. Cook, stirring until the butter develops brown flecks and smells nutty. Watch it closely to keep the butter solids from burning. Turn down the heat and add sage and fry it for 30 to 40 seconds. This takes a few minutes or less so be close by. Transfer the butter and sage to another bowl.
  2. Bring a larger pot of salted water to a rolling boil then add the gnocchi. When it floats to the surface it is done. Allow it for about half a minute more in the boiling water before removing the gnocchi from water.
  3. Scoop the gnocchi from the pot with a spider or slotted spoon, transfer to the skillet and toss until some of the brown-butter flecks stick to the gnocchi. Be careful and stay a bit back.
  4. Pour over brown butter and sage and keep tossing gnocchi.
  5. Add a few tablespoons of the gnocchi cooking water and a gentle squeeze of lemon, about 1 teaspoon or so; toss again.
  6. Remove from the heat and add half of the cheese. Divide among bowls and top with the cheese.
  7. Serve it with a bowl of greens such as Cesar salad.


You may use any pasta for this dish, even ravioli as long as you have sage and herbs and garlic butter.

Michael Angelo’s™ Signature Line

Michael Angelo’s™ Signature Line

Michael Angelo's Signature Line

I am sharing with you all delicious meal ideas coming from the Michael Angelo’s Signature Line. I was impressed with the simplicity of the ingredients without losing the overall taste.

Michael Angelo’s Signature Line is a go-to meal when you need a convenient lunch or dinner that’s as simple, honest, and pure as making it from scratch yourself. Just to be clear, I rarely buy to go meals, but this one surprised me.

The thing I like the most is its delicious flavor and clean ingredients that I can taste and actually pronounce. Absolutely no preservatives or artificial ingredients and it is frozen meals by a family-owned company.

I was really busy the other day, and was swamped with work; editing, writing and of course, taking care of my children, so Michael Angelo’s Signature Line gave me a chance to just take a moment and have lunch and relax for 30 minutes before getting back to work.

These meals are fantastic for people like me, who are cooking literally all the time, but every so often I find myself extremely busy with work and I simply do not have time to make a proper meal for myself, so when I sit to work the last thing on my mind is to cook.

Michael Angelo's Signature Line

No time grocery shopping? Well, Amazon Fresh offers both home delivery and local pick up. See if Amazon Fresh is available in your area and try it out with a free trial.

Needless to say, these meals that taste like you just spend an hour cooking, and made from the scratch by yourself are perfect.

Also, it is great to take it to work and make your co-workers jealous of your gourmet meal but make sure to hide it. Their signature meals date back to the late 1800s.

These treasured dishes have been handed down from generation to generation with one goal in mind — to bring you the absolute best tasting, authentic, Italian cuisine.

All of their meals are made without fillers, dyes or preservatives.

You can use the Store Locator HERE to see where you can find Michael Angelo’sâ„¢ Signature Line, which is in the Freezer Section of your grocery store. They are available Walmart, Publix, Krogers.

Product List:

Michael Angelo’s Eggplant Parmesan

Michael Angelo’s Shrimp Scampi

Michael Angelo’s Lasagna with Meat Sauce

Product Highlights:

Michael Angelo’s Eggplant Parmesan

It’s made with fresh eggplant, lightly breaded, the right amount of Mom’s tomato sauce – made, from hand selected, vine-ripened tomatoes – and topped with Mozzarella. Then sprinkled with a blend of imported cheeses – Parmigiano Reggiano & Pecorino Romano – to complete the dish

Michael Angelo’s Shrimp Scampi

inguini pasta, cooked al dente, and add plump, tender shrimp to our perfectly blended sauce made from lemon butter, and freshly diced garlic. It is then topped with diced tomatoes and garnished with a little parsley

Michael Angelo’s Lasagna with Meat Sauce

This one is made with fresh beef, vine-ripened tomatoes and fresh herbs that are sautéed and layered with firm 100% semolina lasagna and topped with imported Pecorino Romano cheese from the old country.

Michael Angelo's Signature Line

I tried two kinds, and I can’t wait to get Michael Angelo’s Lasagna with Meat Sauce for my to-go meal when I am short on time to cook. Michael Angelo’s Shrimp Scampi was out of this world. Creamy, delicious and on point in the taste and freshness department!

Also, I tried Michael Angelo’s Chicken Parmesan, which was equally fantastic. As I said, they are fantastic to take to work, or just take a break from cooking because you know what you are eating.

Definitely, recommending all their meals.
