When I opened the free booklet that came with the June issue of Olive magazine, it contained the kind of recipe that screams to me "Get into the kitchen and start cooking NOW!" - Butternut Gnocchi with Brown Butter and Sage. Quick check of the ingredients - yep, all present and correct - so I launched straight in.
The recipe, which is available on the BBC Good Food Website, is meant to serve 6, so I halved it, since dividing it into three was impracticable, and instead of the 1½ small egg yolks that this led to, I used one large one, but apart from that I changed nothing.
Being a terribly messy cook, I was very proud of how the uncooked gnocchi turned out
As for the finished result, lovely light, delicious gnocchi in a tangy, lemony butter with a hint of sage - delicious. I'd planned for the "third person's portion" to be saved for my lunch the next day.... but between us we managed to polish almost the whole lot off!
because this is a very economical way to make something that really tastes very special - a real show-off dish for around £1 a head - I'm joining in with Credit Crunch Munch with Farmersgirl Kitchen, Fuss Free Flavours , and Fab Food 4 All and I've put the linky at the bottom so you can see the other cheap but delicious dishes taking part this month.
