Gnocchi With Brown Butter, Pecans, and Basil
Everything about “gnocchi” screams fancy, but luckily you can buy a premade version in the supermarket that takes just a couple of minutes to cook at home. We love the Gia Russa brand, but any shelf-stable version is perfectly fine to use. Browned butter takes this dish over the top, but luckily, you don’t have to babysit it: the butter will brown while you’re cooking crushed garlic cloves and coarsely chopped toasted pecans in it. A squeeze of lemon juice brightens the buttery sauce, and fresh basil and grated Parmigiano-Reggiano make the plates taste next to homemade.
