Place the beets in a baking dish large enough to hold them in a single layer. Season with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil, and add the water. Cover the baking dish tightly with aluminum foil and roast until the beets can be easily pierced with a fork, 40 to 60 minutes. Remove from the oven, uncover, and set aside to cool. When cool enough to handle, slip the skins off the beets with your fingers or a paring knife. Cut the beets into large chunks. In a blender or or the bowl of a food processor, combine the beets and egg and process until very smooth.
Mix with your hands or on medium speed, until fully combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add the all-purpose flour and knead with your hand or on low speed just until combined. Do not over mix, as this will make the gnocchi tough.

Remove immediately with a slotted spoon and finish with your choice of sauce. In a medium sauce pan, melt the butter with the sage over medium-low heat. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the butter becomes golden brown and the milk solids separate to the bottom of the pan and turn toasty, about 10 minutes.
