Gnocchi - how to "sauce" it?

I bought some gnocchi , intending to use Marinara sauce or EVOO or butter.
Any other ideas what to put on these?

They all sound good, Lady. You might want to decide which to use based on whatever else you'll be serving with the gnocchi.

I like them with nothing more then some sage and browned butter. Or, some toasted onion, a little rosemary, and e.v.o.o., halved cherry/grape tomatoes, then toss in some cubed fresh mozz, toss to warm cheese through and serve.

A heavy sauce and the heavy gnochhi can be a little more of a belly buster to me, I try to keep it light, and accent the dumpling.

What about using them as a lite soup? I have heard of that, kinda like a dumpling soup, but they didn't mention a specific recipe.

mmmmm, ragu and garlic powder. Or just the red gravy.
Never liked the way they came out with butter or something lighter. Probably because I like heavy foods.

Quattro formaggio! Basically a cream sauce with 4 cheeses melted into it. OMG...I'm drooling.

I had them in a restaurant once with an Alfredo-like cheese sauce that had crabmeat in it. OMG, to die for ...

Mmmm, brown some butter, toss with gnocchi and grate your favorite hard cheese over it. Yum! I like to add some onion or garlic, but my family prefers it without. They're equally wonderful floating in a good chicken or ham stock with more of that grated cheese. Talk about pure comfort food!!

I've never been fortunate to have gnocchi, but I have heard that they're great with Bolognese sauce.

Funny this came up... I have never had them before and I was eye-ballin these things at the market yesterday. When looking at them, I wondered what you would put on them. You folks just may have inspired me to buy them and try them!
