Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Brown Butter and Basil

One Word. YUM.

Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Brown Butter and Basil

First make sure you have plenty of Sweet Potato Gnocchi boiling in lightly salted water. I made extra Gnocchi and froze it for future meals...like this one!!
 While the Gnocchi is boiling, melt a couple chunks of butter in a large saucepan over medium high heat.
 Swish around the butter every so often keeping a close eye on it. It will start to foam a little bit.
 Now watch for it...watch for it..THERE..see? It starts to turn a nice golden brown...its ready!
 Turn heat off and add the cooked Gnocchi to the butter.
 Add a couple dashes of Ground Nutmeg and a nice bunch of fresh torn basil leaves. The nutmeg really goes well with the brown butter. You really don't want to add too much though as it can be overpowering.
Top with nutty Parmesan cheese and serve.
