Creamy Sage Gnocchi

This delicious creamy sage gnocchi recipe uses only a handful of ingredients and makes a decadent and simple but elegant side dish. It’s ready in less than 20 minutes!


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons fresh sage chopped finely
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard see note
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 500g uncooked potato gnocchi
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Add the butter to a skillet over medium heat. Once it melts, let it cook for about a minute.
  2. Add the sage to the pan, and let it cook for a minute or so, stirring often.
  3. Add the garlic, white wine, Dijon mustard, and cream to the skillet. Give it a good stir/whisk.
  4. Add the uncooked gnocchi to the sauce and then cook, uncovered, stirring occasionally, for 6–8 minutes or until the gnocchi has softened, and the starch released has thickened up the sauce to your liking. You may need to turn down the heat a bit if it’s bubbling too much.
  5. Take the pan off the heat and stir in the Parmesan and season with salt & pepper as needed. Enjoy immediately.


  • If you’re using dry white wine and don’t have any Dijon mustard, you can probably skip if, but if you’re subbing the white wine for chicken broth, it’s highly recommend adding the Dijon for more flavour.
  • Serves 4-6 as a side.
