Crispy Gnocchi Pasta with Tomatoes & Leeks
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add gnocchi and cook, stirring occasionally, until crispy, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate.Advertisement
Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and leek to the pan. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and cook until starting to soften, about 2 minutes. Add sage and garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add wine and butter and cook until the butter melts, about 1 minute. Return the gnocchi to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally, until hot, 1 to 2 minutes more.
Serve the gnocchi and vegetables topped with Parmesan, pepper and more sage, if desired.
