Mushroom & Crispy Sage Gnocchi

Makes 4 servings

6 tablespoons butter

Handful of fresh sage leaves

500 grams mixed mushrooms (as many kinds as possible)

3 garlic cloves, minced

¼ cup dry white wine

1 tablespoon lemon zest

1 pound (500 grams) potato gnocchi (homemade is best)

Parmesan cheese, for serving

Sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-heat and melt ½ of the butter. Add the sage leaves and fry until crispy, about 1 – 2 minutes. Remove the sage with a slotted spoon and set aside.
  2. Add the mushrooms to the pan and season with a pinch of sea salt and pepper. Sauté until the mushrooms are browned and looking freaking fantastic, 6 – 8 minutes (depending on your pan size, you may have to do this is stages – don’t crowd the mushrooms!). Add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, then pour in the wine and stir in the lemon zest. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until the wine is reduce by about ½, 5 – 6 minutes.   
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large stockpot of salted water to a rapid boil. Gently drop the gnocchi in to the water and cook until it floats and is cooked through, 2 – 3 minutes. Remove the gnocchi with a slotted spoon and add it directly to the mushrooms, along with the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, then gently toss together until the butter has melted and every piece of gnocchi has been kissed with deliciousness. 
  4. Serve with a generous bit of parmesan cheese, and an extra hit of freshly cracked black pepper. Delicious.
