Brown Butter Gnocchi with Asiago

Proudly Wisconsin Cheese

Yield: 4 servings

Preparation Time: and total Active Time: 35 min



Cook sausage in a Dutch oven or deep, large skillet over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Remove from the pan. Wipe pan clean.

Cook gnocchi in the same pan according to package directions, adding squash to water at the same time as gnocchi. Boil for 3-4 minutes or until gnocchi floats to the top of water. Drain, reserving 1 cup hot gnocchi water. Set aside. Wipe pan dry.

Melt butter in the same pan over medium-low heat; cook for 3-5 minutes or until butter is deep golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add the gnocchi, squash and sage; cook for 5-7 minutes longer or until squash is tender, stirring occasionally.

Reduce heat to low. Stir in asiago and 1/2 cup reserved hot water. Add remaining hot water, 1/4 cup at a time, until sauce is smooth. Stir in sausage; heat through. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with shaved asiago and sage.

Cheesemonger Tip:
Asiago cheese is aged to develop sharp, buttery and nutty flavors that resemble a cross between aged cheddar and parmesan. For easier handling, bring asiago to room temperature before shredding.
