Food Recipes Gnocchi and Sweet Potatoes With Hazelnuts 3.5 (75) 1 Review Thanks to store-bought gnocchi, this dinner looks like something you’d order in a restaurant, but takes a fraction of the time. Though there are just a few ingredients in the recipe, every single step maximizes flavor. For example, the recipe calls for you to cook some garlic and sage in butter until golden. The cooked sage is extra fragrant and irresistibly crispy, as though it’s been fried. Sautéing hearty herbs is a fantastic trick to keep up your sleeve: it takes just a few minutes, but tastes impressive. We recommend toasting your own nuts for extra crunchy and aromatic results.
