What to serve as a side to gnudi?

Gonna try my hand at gnudi this weekend.

Sauteed in a sage butter with crisped prosciutto and a drizzle of truffle oil.

Figure a good pinot noir would work well with it.

But I am lost on a side dish.

Any thoughts?

How about an Arugula salad - maybe some cooked Artichokes too

Sort of a cousin to gnocchi. Little balls made mostly with ricotta, boiled, then usually pan fried with a sauce.

Google, my friend. They look delicious

Thanks! Just googled it. Looks delicious. I think a nice accompaniment would be a sweet onion and orange salad drizzled with EVOO. The citrus would contrast nicely ith the prosciutto and sage.

I agree a nice fresh summer salad would be the perfect compliment. Add in some olives, whatever you like and drizzle with some balsamic vinaigrette.

I ended up accompanying the gnudi with a salad of baby spinach, roasted beets and diced orange. Drizzled with olive oil. Worked quite well.

Oh, I bet that was a pretty salad. Glad I could inspire you. Try the onion orange thing sometime. I think you'll like it.

My wife wouldn't like the raw onion thing ( I would).

The oranges and beets were an amazing combination.
