  1. Working one portion of the dough at a time, roll it into a long roll, about one inch (2.5 cm) wide. Using a knife, cut the roll into small rectangles. You may leave them as such or give them a pattern by rolling each rectangle down the back of the work.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Then, drop the gnocchi into the boiling water in batches and cook them for 2-3 min, or until they float on the surface. Drain well.
  3. To serve, add the butter and fresh rosemary sprigs to the skillet and heat them up. Then add the gnocchi and cook for a few minutes until lightly brown.
  4. Serve warm with parmesan cheese and fresh rosemary.
