Gnocchi with Sweet Peas, Tomatoes and Sage Brown Butter

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • VEGETARIAN
  1. 3 medium baking potatoes (about 1 2/3 pounds)
  2. 1 large egg
  3. 1/3 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  4. Kosher salt
  5. 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  6. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  7. 12 large sage leaves
  8. 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  9. Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  10. 1 cup fresh or thawed frozen baby peas, blanched if fresh
  11. 1 pint yellow cherry tomatoes, halved lengthwise
  12. Freshly ground black pepper
  13. 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  1. Preheat the oven to 450°. Pierce the potatoes all over with a fork and bake for 1 hour, or until tender. Let cool slightly, then halve lengthwise and scoop out the flesh. Pass the potatoes through a ricer or food mill into a large bowl. Measure out 2 cups and let cool slightly. Save any remaining potatoes for another use.
  2. In a medium bowl, using a handheld mixer, beat the potatoes at low speed with the egg, nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon of salt just until combined. Mix in the flour until a soft dough forms.
  3. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and dust it with flour. On a lightly floured surface, gently knead the dough for 1 minute, until smooth. Quarter the dough and roll each quarter into a 1/2-inch-thick rope; cut the ropes into 1-inch pieces and transfer to the baking sheet. Hold a fork with the tines pointing slightly downward and gently roll each piece of dough against the tines to make slight grooves.
  4. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add the gnocchi and cover. When the water returns to a boil, uncover, stir gently and boil for about 1 minute, or until tender. Using a slotted spoon, lift the gnocchi into a strainer to drain.
  5. Melt the butter in a large, deep skillet. Add the sage and parsley and cook over moderately high heat until the sage is crisp and the butter starts to brown, about 3 minutes. Add the gnocchi and lemon zest and toss well. Add the peas, tomatoes and a generous pinch of salt and pepper and cook, tossing, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Add the Parmesan and toss to combine. Transfer the gnocchi to bowls and serve.
