Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Butter and Sage

Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours
Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Italian
Keyword: gnocchi
Servings: 8


  • 1 kg sweet potatoes
  • 500 grams all purpose flour
  • 200 grams grated parmigiano reggiano
  • 4 leaves fresh sage
  • 125 grams unsalted butter
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • grated nutmeg (optional)


  • Bake the sweet potatoes in a preheated oven at 375 degrees F.
  • On a clean surface, mix flour and 30 grams of grated parmigiano reggiano.
  • Peel the baked sweet potatoes and rice them over the flour and parmigiano mixture. Season with salt, pepper, and grated nutmeg.
  • Gently combine the ingredients together in order to obtain homogenous dough. Ensure all the ingredients are properly mixed together. (Make sure not to overwork the dough).
  • Roll the dough into a 'sausage shape' (about 1/2 inch thick) and then cut it into pieces, about 3/4 inch long.
  • To shape the gnocchi, pick up a piece of the dough, press it together with your finger tips against the tines of the fork, or to a wooden gnocchi paddle.
  • Drop the gnocchi into a large pot of salted boiling water. When they float to surface, sauté in a skillet with melted butter and fresh sage. Add a little of the pasta water, sprinkle with grated parmigiano reggiano, and serve.



Chef Notes: This is a great way to keep some togetherness and excitement at home. Using healthy sweet potatoes and simply serving them with butter and sage, as a classical base sauce.  This is most traditional potato gnocchi or maybe if you feel like being creative try a wonderful fresh tomato and basil sauce - it’s a great choice.
