Pasta for breakfast! (Photo and recipe © Giovanni Rana.)
Here’s a fun idea for breakfast or brunch: “Gnocchi Home Fries,” made with potato gnocchi instead of sliced potatoes, in yummy sage brown butter.
Sauté with pancetta, onions and rosemary; or add sausage, and freshly-grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. Or add it all, topped with a poached or fried egg.

RECIPE: POTATO GNOCCHI HOME FRIES
For The Home Fries
½ – 8.8-ounce package Giovanni Rana Gnocchi di Patate
2 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 ounce pancetta or bacon, cut into ¼” strips (easier to cut when frozen)
1/2 onion, diced
½ teaspoon finely chopped rosemary or sage
2 teaspoon vegetable oil, such as canola
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
Kosher salt, to taste
2 tablespoons Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
6 leaves fresh sage
Kosher salt, to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
For The Eggs
1. SAUTÉ pancetta or bacon over medium/low heat with extra virgin olive oil in a nonstick pan. When crispy, remove to a paper towel to drain. Add onions and chopped rosemary and sauté over medium heat until tender and starting to brown; about 7-9 minutes. Remove to a bowl and wipe pan clean.
2. HEAT 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in the nonstick pan over high heat until almost smoking. Add the gnocchi and sauté, constantly tossing to prevent burning, until they are golden brown. Turn off heat.
3. RETURN onions and pancetta to the pan. Add 2 tablespoons unsalted butter and toss until butter is melted. Empty contents of pan into a bowl. Add Parmigiano-Reggiano and toss.
4. MELT 2 tablespoons unsalted butter in a small nonstick pan over medium heat. Add fresh sage leaves and swirl pan until the butter begins to brown. Turn heat off and allow the pan to cool slightly; about 1 minute. Add the eggs and season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Fry the eggs on medium/low heat to desired doneness, spooning some of the brown butter over top of them a few times; about 2-1/2 minutes for sunny side up.
5. PLATE the home fries and top with fried eggs.
