Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Rosemary Garlic Butter

Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Rosemary Garlic Butter

I decided to make Sweet Potato Gnocchi with a simple Rosemary Garlic Butter. Gnocchi are not difficult to make but are a little bit time consuming. There really isn’t much to the pasta dough here, its simply sweet potato, an egg, flour, cinnamon, salt and pepper. These gnocchi are beautiful little tender pillows of deliciousness! I love the combination of the sweetness of the potato with the rosemary and garlic infused butter. The butter is slowly cooked along with a couple sprigs of rosemary, crushed garlic cloves, salt and pepper. After the gnocchi are cooked in a pot of boiling water they are drained, tossed in with the butter and quickly sautéed until they develop a gorgeous light golden crust. I love biting into the gnocchi and first getting that golden crisp and then into the light and tender pasta. This dish is absolutely worth the effort and I can’t wait to try out even more varieties!
