Pan-Fried Gnocchi with Butter and Sage

A classic pasta dish brought to life with the delicious Cultured Oat Butter by Lauds. It’s simple but big on flavor thanks to the cultured butter. It’s a breeze to make and you can throw it together in 20mins or less! An easy weeknight dinner.

Makes 2-3 servings  |  Cook Time: 20 mins


500g packaged uncooked gnocchi (or 3 cups)
2 tbsp olive oil
1⁄2 cup Lauds Cultured Oat Butter
12 large fresh sage leaves
1 tsp lemon zest
1⁄4 tsp salt
1⁄4 tsp black pepper


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Add the gnocchi and cook for 1-2 minutes or until all the gnocchi is floating.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil up in a large non-stick frypan, use a slotted spoon to transfer gnocchi into the frypan, shaking off as much water as possible. Keep the gnocchi in a single layer and fry until gnocchi is golden brown. Set gnocchi aside.
  3. Wipe off your frypan with some paper towel and return the pan to low-medium heat. As the butter is melting, add the sage leaves and fry for a few minutes, stirring occasionally. It takes a while for the leaves to get crispy, but avoid turning the heat up as the butter will burn.
  4. Add the gnocchi, season with the salt, pepper and lemon zest and mix well to combine.
  5. Serve immediately and enjoy.
