Cheesy Gnocchi Skillet

A great one pot sausage meal ready in under 30 minutes without complicated ingredients!

I feel strange posting recipes as normal, but I have been cooking as normally as I can while the shelves are picked clean. I've made some changes here and there on the fly, but have been pretty lucky to find what I need - because I planned for the whole month in the end of February not knowing what would happen in a few short weeks.

For us, food is starting to be better kept in stock but when it was more scarce, sausage was more available than any other protein. I couldn't tell you if there's gnocchi. We have barely had diced tomatoes - but you could go fresh. This recipe would be great if you can find those ingredients or make some slight modifications. If you can't, save it for later :) I know I have eyed some things I probably won't be able to make in the near future and have been saving them to my pin boards.

I hope that you readers are doing well and you and your loved ones are in good health. My hope is that with all the stay home orders going out this past week that this will be over soon and we can go forward with more insight on how to better prepare ourselves and prevent the mess that has ensued.

What you need:
  • 16 oz. potato gnocchi
  • 2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb. Italian sausage
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella
  1. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. 
  2. Cook gnocchi for about 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from pan.
  3. Add sausage and cook until browned, crumbling as you go. Remove from pan.
  4. Add garlic, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to the pan. Cook for 7 minutes.
  5. Add gnocchi and sausage back to the pan. Then stir in cream. Heat until warm.
  6. Top with cheese and allow to melt.

Another simple sausage recipe that I love is this Sausage Parmesan and Garlic Linguine. Now is as good a time as any to learn to make gnocchi and this recipe for Easy Gnocchi from Cookin' Mimi uses instant potato mix.
