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.
