gnocchi with browned butter thyme sauce

Mmm.  I love gnocchi.  It’s really heavy and rich, so I typically eat as a side rather than a main dish.  I use pre-packaged gnocchi from Trader Joes.  Much easier and just as good as made-from-scratch.  This is a quick sauce recipe and the pecorino romano cheese tops off the dish.  Enjoy!

Gnocchi With Browned Butter Thyme Sauce
adapted a little from Giada De Laurentiis

1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
1/4 cup pecorino romano cheese, shredded

Cook the butter in a heavy medium skillet over medium heat until it begins to brown, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat. Add the thyme leaves. Set aside. Cook gnocchi per package directions and drain. Toss with butter thyme sauce and top with pecorino romano cheese. Can be served as a main or side dish.
