Gnocchi with Sausage and Spinach

Today was an extremely busy day so I had no time to go to the grocery store. This dinner used up ingredients I had on hand and was finished cooking within 20 minutes – perfect for a busy weekday. This was such a comforting and delicious dish. My kids have recently discovered a love for gnocchi so I decided to make some tossed with sausage, spinach, garlic, and Parmesan. It turned out to be flavorful and really delicious.

  3. i feel dumb–i had no idea you could buy gnocchi! i’ve only tried it one or two times, and that was off of some else’s plate at a restaurant. it was all right, though, and would be even better with sausage!

  4. Making gnocchi from scratch is on the to do list. Everyone loves them, and this is a great way to serve them. Very simple, so they totally shine through.
