Gnocchi with Butternut Squash, Pine Nuts & Sage Butter

I've been  holding a Meatless Monday Party over on my Facebook page for the last month. This is  my last post for a really successful month of wonderful vegetarian food shared by so many people.

For a deliciously wonderful and so simple meal I've included this delicious Gnocchi dish. You can make your own if you like but the gnocchi I used were from the 400g of pre-cooked supermarket variety making this one of the the simplest, quickest meals ever.

Here we go.  If you have sage in the garden then pick around 8 leaves and we're off.

Ingredients to serve 4 as a starter or 2 as a main course

12 oz diced butternut squash steamed until almost tender
2oz salted butter
8/10 fresh sage leaves, half finely sliced the remainder whole for decoration
salt & black pepper to taste.
a 400g packet of prepared gnocchi cooked as per instructions
a really good grating of fresh Parmesan
2/3 tbsp of toasted pine nuts to finish


1. melt the butter in a frying pan, add the drained butternut squash and fry on until starting to brown
2. add the sliced sage and the recently cooked gnocchi and continue heating until piping hot.
3, add the grated Parmesan & pine nuts and serve immediately onto hot plates decorating with any spare sage leaves .

Now that was just so easy wasn't it ?
