I love one pot meals! They make dinner time so much easier. I mean, who needs more dishes to wash? I especially love one pot meals when they’re as delicious and satisfying as this Cheesy Gnocchi and Sausage Skillet.
Rave reviews…and they barely left a bowl for me. And was counting on not only a bowl for me but 2 lunch servings. Oh well guess, I’m tripling it next time. ~ Susan
Gnocchi cooks up really quickly, so you can have this tasty skillet dinner on the table in under 30 minutes.
I just love those little pillows of pasta! In fact, I try to keep some in my pantry at all times because I can always whip up a quick and delicious meal if I have gnocchi on hand.
And when you smother gnocchi in a creamy sausage and tomato sauce, then top it off with melted cheese, it’s pretty much pasta perfection. Best of all, I only had one pot to clean when we were done eating. And I have no complaints about that!
This one is definitely going into the regular rotation at our house. It’s exactly the kind of recipe you need in your collection for those busy week nights when you need to get dinner on the table in a hurry.
