potato gnocchi sage butter sauceNormally I always bought ready-to-eat Gnocchi from supermarket, I was thinking about to make homemade gnocchi, it must be more delicious. Did you know that I just published my first eCookbook? The title is “The Secret of Sweet Potatoes“, it’s consist of 30 delicious recipes (never been posted on this blog) from appetizer to dessert made from sweet potatoes.

I’ve made sweet potato Gnocchi on my eCookbook, it’s make me addicted, that’s why I make Gnoochi experiment again with Potato, served with Sage butter sauce, topped with grated parmesan cheese. On this recipe I used pure mashed potato, just boil 500g peeled-washed-potatoes with one liter water for 20 minutes until tender. Remove the water and mash the boiled potatoes with potato masher until smooth. At the end you’ll need 2 cups of mashed potato to make this recipe.
