This baked casserole resembles a loaded baked potato, although, instead of potato, I used gnocchi and topped it with ground turkey, pasta sauce, and cheese.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook gnocchi in the boiling water until they float to the top, 2 to 4 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir ground turkey in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, about 5 minutes, making sure not to overcook as meat will continue to brown in the oven. Stir in marinara sauce; remove from heat.

  • Transfer cooked gnocchi to a 9-inch square baking dish using a slotted spoon. Top with meat sauce. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese begins to brown, 25 to 35 minutes. Serve with sour cream on the side.

Cook's Note:

You can use your favorite cheese blend in place of shredded Cheddar cheese, if preferred.

Definitely need to add spices to the ground turkey before adding marinara sauce. I did a standard garlic, onion, oregano and some salt and pepper. It turned out fine. Lots of cheese made it even better, totally worth making a second time. Read More
