A simple homemade beet and semolina gnocchetti served in a browned butter and sage sauce. 



  1. Boil the gnocchetti

    In a pot of well salted water boil the gnocchetti for 5 minutes or until they float. 

    If using store bought follow the instructions.
  2. Brown the butter

    Place the butter and sage in a skillet on medium-low heat. Slowly cook the butter until it starts to brown. 

    Pay close attention to the butter. It goes from brown to burnt in 30 seconds. If you are unsure it is better to pull off the heat too early than too late.
  3. Finish the gnocchetti

    Add the strained gnocchetti into the butter and increase the heat to medium. Cook for a minute to coat.

    Serve with parmigiano reggiano.
