In this sumptuous summer pasta dish, we’re pairing gnocchi with brown butter—simply butter that has been heated to a deep golden brown, developing a deliciously toasty, nutty flavor. Chopped almonds accent the brown butter sauce, while sautéed yellow squash adds tender bite (and a pop of bright, sunny color). A pair of silky soft-boiled eggs round out the dish with the perfect amount of satisfying richness.

Once the foam subsides, continue cooking, stirring occasionally and swirling the pan, 2 to 3 minutes, or until deep golden brown and nuttily fragrant. (Be careful not to overcook, as the butter can burn easily.)

Add the squash to the pan of browned butter; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened.
