Creamy Sausage and Mushroom Gnocchi Skillet


This creamy sausage gnocchi is a comforting, indulgent dish with ingredients like wine, cream, and shallots. I do not recommend adding salt because I find the sausage has enough salt. Although cheese is optional, I find it gets lost in the sauce.

  • 3 Italian-style turkey sausages, casings removed

  • 4 ounces portobello mushrooms, coarsely chopped

  • 2 shallots, minced

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 tablespoon oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ cup dry white wine (such as Pinot Grigio)

  • 1 (18 ounce) package potato gnocchi

  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream

  • ½ teaspoon Italian herbs (such as cantanzaro herbs from Savory Spice Shop®)

  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes, or to taste (Optional)

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until crumbly and no longer pink, about 7 minutes. Add mushrooms, shallots, butter, and oil; cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms and shallots are soft and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in white wine and simmer until wine has reduced by half, about 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook gnocchi in boiling water until pasta floats to the top, 2 to 4 minutes. Drain.

  3. Add gnocchi, cream, Italian herbs, pepper flakes, salt, and pepper. Cook over medium-low heat until sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes.


You can use homemade gnocchi in place of packaged gnocchi.
