Because I was making this for a crowd, I prepared the browned butter ahead of time (I also wondered if making the browned butter, then sauteeing the vegetables in it, might burn the butter?). I then used a little olive oil in a nonstick pan to saute the vegetables (prepped earlier in the day) drizzling in the browned butter before adding the cheese. Because I wanted to emphasize a summery flavor, I used only 1/4 of the parsley called for, but added a huge handful of freshly-chopped basil over the top before serving. I also used shrimp and lobster-filled ravioli instead of the gnocchi. Really, I can't remember the last time I have received so many (and so often-repeated) compliments on a dish. I'm thinking that, next time, some chopped hazelnuts to garnish would elevate this even more.
Pros: Easy, can prep ahead
