Heat a saute pan over medium heat with all of the butter in it. It's best to use a light bottomed skillet so that you can see what color the butter is. Cook for about 5 minutes, at which point the butter should be foaming.
You can now turn the heat to medium high and continue to whisk or stir the butter so solids don't stick to the bottom of the pan. Watch the butter continuously as it can suddenly burn.
Meanwhile, fill a saucepan with water and turn the heat to medium high. Once boiling, salt the water and add the gnocchi, giving it a quick stir once it's in the water. Cook for 1 minute and drain in a colander.
Once the butter begins to turn amber colored, throw in the drained gnocchi, sage and stir to combine. Turn the heat to medium and cook until the gnocchi is crisp.
Serve on a platter with dash of salt and pepper if needed and of course, parmesan cheese!
Storage: will keep in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
