A light-tasting dish with mild flavors that is quick to prepare as long as you prep the gnocchi in advance.

I had bought some tomato-basil chicken sausage from Aldi (package of 4 and I used all of them) and didn't have a clue what I was going to do with it so I typed "chicken sausage" into the ingredients search and this recipe showed up in the search. I made the gnudi (ricotta gnocchi) also from this site to use in this recipe. I didn't see the purpose of the flour in this recipe so I left it out. I really liked this but my husband and son were not thrilled so I probably won't make it again - but I encourage others to try it! Read More

It did take a lot of pots and pans but very yummy! I substituted Ghee for butter and used rice flower. Still delicious! Used Delallo gluten free gnocchi Read More

As written, I would give this recipe one star. However, taking the idea of the recipe and turning it into a one pot preparation made it 5 stars. I doubled the recipe, no butter, sauteed the onion in a bit of olive oil, potato gnocchi, Aldi's spinach and feta chicken sausage, and used a lot of chicken broth. My family could not get enough of it. Read More

Personally I would rate this a 4 as its a little plain and could use a tad more flavour but the husband and two kids loved it (other than the broccoli for the kids) so I'll probably be making this again. May try an Italian pork sausage next time for more flavour and something a little more than just a butter sauce. Read More

This is a great basis for a recipe. I used the essentially the same ingredients but in different proportions and simplified the steps to reduce the number of pots/pans used. Was super delicious and so I'm happy I found this one. I will add a modified version of it to my recipes. Read More

I think I needed to chop the sausage and broccoli into smaller pieces for better texture but the flavor and pairings worked well. We ll make again. Read More

I made this! It's a bit tasteless. While being healthy something is missing. I used less pots by combining some steps. I added grated parmesan cheese for more flavor. I encourage people to try it but I doubt I will be making this again. Read More
