Sausage, gnocchi, and spinach are the main ingredients in this quick, one-skillet meal. I've used mild sausages but hot Italian sausages can be substituted. Gnocchi is usually in the same isle as dried pasta.

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat avocado oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook until softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add sausage; stir to break up the meat and cook until well browned, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Drain excess oil and keep meat mixture in the skillet. Add gnocchi, stirring to break up any clumps. Stir in tomatoes, salt, basil, oregano, and pepper. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Stir in spinach and nutmeg and simmer until spinach has wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses on top, cover, and simmer until cheese has melted, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve immediately.

Super easy to make and very easy clean up. Even better it was an absolute hit with my husband. I think he had three servings. We both had it for lunch today - as with many dishes like this it was even better the next day. Highly recommend! Read More

This is a very good Gnocchi dish, we really liked it. I used mild Italian Sausage and San Marzano tomatoes. The San Marzano tomatoes don’t have water in them so I was a bit short on liquid. I added some water to the can to scrape out the can and it worked great. The flavours are wonderful, all in all delicious. Thank you for another great recipe and another way to make Gnocchi.

Delicious and so easy. I used ground turkey Italian sausage instead of chicken Italian sausage and frozen cauliflower. I topped with grated parmesan when serving. Read More
