Thank goodness it's friday... this week has taken forever! I guess it didn't help that last week we were running so much we really didn't have much of a weekend. We're busy tomorrow... venturing to Hershey Park with my Mom, sister, niece & nephew.... but Sunday... oh Sunday.. will be spent at home!

Anyone remember Perfect Strangers from the TGIF lineup?!?! it was my FAV!

Enjoy your weekends!

Pumpkin Gnocchi with Brown Butter Sauce

This recipe was to die for.. ( found here ) . It was quick simple & tasted like something you'd order at a restaurant. I was quite proud of myself for making this one. And this is in rotation for future meatless monday's!

All the ingredients you need: Pumpkin Gnocchi, Heavy Cream, Pepper, Butter, Sage & Romano Cheese.

Making the sauce while the Gnocchi cooks.

Finished Product. Delicious!

Here's what you need:

1 stick (4 oz)  Unsalted Butter
1 pkg (16 oz)  Pumpkin Gnocchi
1/2 cup (4 oz)  Heavy Cream
1 pkg (.25 oz)  Sage
freshly ground black pepper
Pecorino Romano Cheese
Here's what you do:
  1. Start bringing gnocchi water to boil. Melt butter in small saucepan on MED. Heat 8-10 min, stirring constantly, until it begins to turn light golden brown (don't let it burn). Strain butter to remove dark solids; set aside.
  2. Bring cream to simmer in skillet. Stir in 1 /4 cup brown butter. Remove from heat.  
  3. Cook gnocchi per package directions, drain well.   Add gnocchi, sage and black pepper to sauce. (Thin sauce with pasta water if necessary.)
  4. Transfer gnocchi to serving plates; sprinkle with Pecorino cheese.

Serve with a side salad & it's good to go. Definitely one of my fav's so far! Let me know if you try it and what you think.
