Ingredients

How to make it

  • For the Gnocchi:
  • Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Pierce the sweet potato with a fork. Bake the sweet potatoes until tender and fully cooked, between 40 to 55 minutes depending on size. Cool slightly.
  • Cut in half and scoop the flesh into a large bowl. Mash the sweet potatoes and transfer to a large measuring cup to make sure the sweet potatoes measure about 2 cups.
  • Transfer the mashed sweet potatoes back to the large bowl.
  • Add the ricotta cheese, salt, cinnamon, and pepper and blend until well mixed.
  • Add the flour, 1/2 cup at a time until a soft dough forms.
  • Lightly flour a work surface and place the dough in a ball on the work surface.
  • Divide the dough into 6 equal balls.
  • Roll out each ball into a 1-inch wide rope.
  • Cut each rope into 1-inch pieces.
  • Roll the gnocchi over the tines of a fork.
  • Transfer the formed gnocchi to a large baking sheet.
  • Continue with the remaining gnocchi.
  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat.
  • Add the gnocchi in 3 batches and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, about 5 to 6 minutes.
  • Drain the gnocchi using a slotted spoon onto a baking sheet.
  • Tent with foil to keep warm and continue with the remaining gnocchi.
  • For the Brown Butter sauce:
  • While the gnocchi are cooking melt the butter in a large saute pan over medium heat.
  • When the butter has melted add the sage leaves.
  • Continue to cook, swirling the butter occasionally, until the foam subsides and the milk solids begin to brown.
  • Remove the pan from the heat.
  • Stir in the cinnamon, maple syrup, salt, and pepper. Careful, the mixture will bubble up. Gently stir the mixture.
  • When the bubbles subside, toss the cooked gnocchi in the brown butter.
  • Transfer the gnocchi to a serving dish and serve immediately.

    I made this, it was great, my friends love it, but sorry, I didn't add as much ground cinnamon. I only add a little pinch of it on the gnocchi and the butter, and I add alittle bit of ground nutmeg powder too
