    This is my favourite way to serve fresh gnocchi, with a sausage and tomato sauce. Very filling and tasty.

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frypan over medium heat. Add sausages and cook until browned and firm, about 10 minutes. Cut sausages into 1/2 inch slices, return to the frypan and continue cooking until no longer pink. Drain sausage slices on a paper towel lined plate.
    2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat; stir in onion and cook until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning; cook until the garlic softens, about 2 minutes. Pour in crushed tomatoes, water, salt, sugar and remaining 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning. Bring to a simmer then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
    3. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add gnocchi and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until gnocchi floats; drain.
    4. Meanwhile, stir Italian sausage slices into sauce to rewarm. Toss gnocchi with sauce and sprinkle with chopped parsley and grated Romano cheese to serve.

    Of course I had to try this one - as my daughter submitted it! Nice, easy family meal. I did add about 1/2 cup of dry red wine. Good recipe, honey.  -  01 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This dish was fantastic! This was my first time having gnocchi. It is great! Not adding the sugar was my only change. Also, A little goes a long way. I looked at the little dish of gnocchi (1 lb) and thought "There's no way this is feeding 3 adults!". It did! - with leftovers! Thanks for the fantastic recipe.  -  10 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Huge hit at our house! I made homemade gnocchi for this and changed the sauce up slightly. I used a can of chopped tomatoes, a can of tomato sauce and a can of tomato paste and also used ground sausage instead. I am sure my husband will be requesting this over and over again!  -  08 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
