Gnocchi With Sausage
I have a tasty skillet meal using some of the homemade Sweet Potato Gnocchi I shared in my last post!
Aren’t skillet meals the best recipe for busy week nights, especially when the meal is tasty, simple to make, and you want to lick the bowl clean!
I’m thrilled when we have a dish that can be stretched a couple of days my adding some sausage and a few other tasty ingredients.
Am I alone feeling like an accomplished cook when leftovers look and taste like nothing we ate earlier in the week?
Skillet meals are the best for evenings I don’t want to cook — gasp!
It’s true, sometimes I would rather have a platter of cheese and crackers with a glass of wine and call it a night.
All good with me, but more often than not that will lead to munching on tortilla chips with salsa (hubs) or bites of leftover cake (me).
This meal is super easy to make, ready in under 30 minutes when you prepare the gnocchi in advance.
Nice and filling and since it can all be cooked in one pan the clean up is minimal too!
- 25-30 pieces of sweet potato gnocchi
- 3/4 pound Italian sausage
- 14 1/2 ounce can diced tomatoes
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1/4 cup heavy cream (optional) - see notes
- salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet cook Italian sausage over medium high heat break up the sausage with a mixing spoon and cook until the meat is no longer pink. Drain any excess oil.
Mix in the diced tomatoes and Italian seasoning. Gently fold in gnocchi and let ingredients heat for another 5 minutes. Serve immediately.
For a tasty variation, if the tomatoes have a lot of liquid add 1/4 cup of cream for a light rose colored sauce.
