Ingredients for Cheesy Garlic Buttered Gnocchi:
The Steps for Cheesy Garlic Buttered Gnocchi:
- Melt butter in the skillet and add the olive oil. Then add the crushed garlic cloves to the pan and cook until fragrant.
- Next, add in gnocchi and allow to cook in the butter for about 5 minutes until they become soft. Add in salt, pepper, lemon juice and parmesan cheese.
- Allow the cheese to melt. Serve immediately. Garnish with some extra parmesan, fresh cracked pepper and parsley.
Why do you use both butter and olive oil?
You add olive oil in with the butter to help the butter not brown. There is definitely a time and place for browned butter and this recipe is not it! It also helps the garlic keep from burning!
Do I have to boil the gnocchi first?
Nope! Cooking the gnocchi in the butter will completely suffice! Just make sure you let it cook until it is soft!
What are some yummy side dishes I could pair with this meal?
