  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon DeLallo Private Reserve Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 pound DeLallo Potato Gnocchi
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan
  • fresh basil to garnish


  • Melt the butter and olive oil in a large skillet. Add shallot, garlic and red pepper flakes to the skillet and heat until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Using a slotted spoon, remove as much of the shallot / garlic from the skillet and set aside (we will add it back later). Leave the infused butter and olive oil in the pan.
  • Add gnocchi to the pan and cook on high, stirring frequently for about 5-6 minutes. Flip the gnocchi evenly in the pan for crisp texture on all sides.
  • Add the shallot and garlic back to the pan, sprinkle half the parmesan and give a quick stir to coat well. Remove the garlic butter parmesan gnocchi from the pan and serve with remaining grated parmesan and fresh basil.
