3 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes, sliced

------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Preheat oven to 200C.

Put the Brussels sprouts in a bowl. Splash the olive oil over the sprouts  and season with salt and pepper. Stir so the olive oil coats the vegetables evenly.

Spread the Brussels sprouts on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for about 20-25 minutes. Turn them over once for even roasting.

In the meantime, roast the pine nuts in a dry pan over medium heat for 5-7 minutes.

When the Brussels sprouts are ready, transfer them to a serving dish, combine with the sliced dried tomatoes and sprinkle the pine nuts on top.

Cook the Gnocchis according to instructions. Drain.

Heat the butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and sage and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the Gnocchis and cook until golden brown. Add the Brussels sprouts and stir. Transfer to serving bowl and serve immediately.
