This recipe is so simple and full of amazing Jersey Girls ingredients!! This recipe makes enough for 6-8 people as a side dish or for 4 people as a main course.
Shape dough on a well-floured surface with lightly floured hands into 1-inch-thick ropes. Cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces with a lightly floured knife. Put in 1 layer on a lightly floured parchment-lined baking sheet.
Cook gnocchi in 2 batches in a pot of boiling salted water (3 tablespoons salt for 6 quarts water), adding a few at a time to the pot and stirring occasionally, until cooked through (cut one in half to check), 5-6 minutes per batch. Lift out with a slotted spoon and drain in colander.
Meanwhile, cook butter in a 12-inch heavy skillet over medium-low heat until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
Toss gnocchi with brown butter in skillet and sprinkle with remaining grated cup of cheese. Season with salt.
For a delicious variation, toss with sauteed seasonal vegetables for a hearty vegetarian entree!
