Cheesy Sausage Gnocchi

One pot meals have to be my favorite of all time. Wouldn’t you have to agree?

Crockpot and slow cooker meals are a second behind that.

Just having everything thrown into one pot to have it cook and not dirty a bunch of different dishes and pans and knives and whatnot to make dinner is seriously a time saver.

For this cheesy sausage gnocchi, I just threw it all into one big pan and cooked it till it was done… basically. Worked out perfectly and there weren’t any leftovers – which in my house means it was really good. ha!

The creamy gnocchi paired with the slightly crispy sausage worked perfectly together, then throw a bunch of cheese on top and you have deliciousness in a pan.  Cheese makes everything better.

  1. Wow Jenn this sounds delicious, all of the flavours are spot on… Totally with you on one pot dinners they are just the best, although in our house the person doing the cooking never does the dishes so the cook rarely worries about the mayhem they create in the kitchen 😉

  2. Absolutely delicious recipe! I used fresh garlic and subbed half n half for the heavy cream otherwise followed the recipe. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this, thanks for sharing!
