    35 minutes

    Gnocchi just got easier! This recipe has only four ingredients but I think you will find it is delightfully hearty. Serve with a salad and garlic bread.

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
    2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add gnocchi and cook until tender, 5 to 8 minutes.
    3. Meanwhile crumble the sausage into a frypan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Drain grease and stir in the spaghetti sauce. Remove from heat and carefully mix in the cooked gnocchi and half of the mozzarella cheese. Transfer to a casserole dish. Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
    4. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven until the cheese is melted and the sauce is bubbly.

    This is pretty basic - let's face it, it's just noodles, sauce, and cheese. Your average college student can do this. However, classics are classics for a reason, and this was tasty and easy. No complaints from me or my fiancee. Changes I made: I added 2 big cloves of crushed garlic to the sausage while it was cooking, some dried basil to the sauce, used a six-cheese sauce, used more sauce than called for (1 big jar), added grated fresh parmesan to the mozzarella on top, and used half gnocchi and half cheese tortellini. A quick, tasty, throw-together meal - I won't keep the recipe on hand because come on, you make this once, you have it memorized. But I'll remember it for busy weeknight dinners in the future.  -  26 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I have to laugh at this "recipe". Okay. 2 stars, one to the submitter, and one to the staff... for putting it out there as a "recipe" of the day!  -  29 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a nice change of pace. I made a "garlic bread topping" By toasting some bread, and throwing it in the food proccessor with little bit of melted butter, garlic, parmesan chese, and parsley. Threw it under the broiler at the end, Yum!  -  07 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
