We’ve taken classic gnocchi and added a twist by using hearty and tender sweet potatoes and covering them in a buttery sage sauce made with Sargento® Shredded Parmesan Cheese. You’ll savor perfect Italian flavors in each hand-rolled piece.

  • 1 lb. sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 tsp. each: salt and grated nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) Sargento® Shredded Parmesan Cheese, divided
  • 1 to 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced fresh sage leaves
  1. Cook sweet potatoes in simmering water until very tender, 16 to 18 minutes. Drain well; transfer to a large bowl. Mash well with potato masher; let stand until cooled to room temperature, about 10 minutes.
  2. Stir in egg, salt and nutmeg; mix well. Stir in 1/4 cup cheese. Stir in flour 1/4 cup at a time until soft dough forms. Divide dough into 4 pieces. On a floured surface, roll each piece of dough to form a 1/2-inch thick long rope. Cut rope into 1 inch pieces; roll each piece with well-floured hands to form a smooth oval shape and place on a sheet of waxed paper.*
  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil; add 1 tablespoon salt. Add half of gnocchi to water; simmer until tender, 4 to 5 minutes, stirring once. Transfer with slotted spoon to clean sheet of waxed paper; cool completely. Repeat with remaining gnocchi. Gnocchi may be made through step 3 up to 2 ours in advance; let stand at room temperature. Gnocchi may also be covered and chilled up to 24 hours or frozen up to 3 months.
  4. Melt butter in a large deep skillet over medium heat. Cook until butter begins to brown and has a nutty aroma, about 4 minutes. Stir in sage; reduce heat to medium-low. Add gnocchi; sauté until heated through, 4 to 5 minutes. Spoon into shallow bowls; top with remaining cheese.
