  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the gnocchi following the packet instructions. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and shallots and cook for 5-6 minutes, until softened and just starting to caramelise.
  3. Turn down the heat a little and add the garlic. Cook gently for 2 minutes more, then season well. Tip the mixture into a clean bowl and cover with foil to keep warm.
  4. Wipe out the pan with kitchen paper and add the butter. Melt over a medium heat, swirling it around the pan, until it turns golden brown. Add the cooked gnocchi to the pan and toss, until coated in the butter. Spoon the buttery gnocchi into bowls and top with the warm mushroom mixture. Serve scattered with the parsley and lemon zest.
