Creamy Gnocchi and Sausage |

It’s that time of the week again. As the days grow shorter, you begin to crave comfort food, to shut out the cold and the chill. Though you may think that gnocchi and sausage are polar opposites, the truth is that they are kindred souls, just like you and I.

I had to make a menu change. Last week I was preparing a dinner for an event and was inspired by a recipe for “gnocchi” that I had. Since I wanted to make something for the event, I decided that I would make gnocchi. Of course, I didn’t have time to run out to the store and buy some, but I knew that I could make some. The ingredients that I needed to make gnocchi were…

I found a new favorite dish! It is also one of the easiest recipes I have ever made. You can change it up by using different cheeses or meats, depending on your preference. I used bacon, onion, and sausage but you could use anything you like. I think red bell pepper would be great next time and maybe some spinach too.


I sometimes crave a decadent meal. The type that isn’t good for your health, but is good for your emotions. After a long day, the type to cheer you up. When the weather is bad, it may also serve as a bright point in the day. That’s exactly what this Sausage and Creamy Gnocchi recipe is. The delicious sausage is well paired with pillowy gnocchi in a creamy cream sauce.


What exactly is gnocchi?

Gnocchi is an Italian pasta that is characterized by its soft dough dumplings. Typically, they are cooked with potatoes and flour, although other variations may contain ricotta, cheese, or cornmeal. Gnocchi has a pillowy soft dough texture with ridges on the outside that allow sauce to adhere to the pasta. Gnocchi may be eaten with a variety of sauces, including as cream, tomato, and pesto.


What kind of sausage should I use?

I used sweet Italian sausage in my Creamy Gnocchi and Sausage dish. You may use spicy Italian sausage or loose ground sausage as a replacement for this sausage. Some chicken sausage types may also work, but I would avoid andouille-seasoned sausages.


Is gnocchi a kind of pasta or a type of potato?

Okay, this is the continuing gnocchi argument. Gnocchi is a kind of pasta that is also known as a potato dumpling in certain quarters. Although the classifications are a little hazy, gnocchi may also be prepared without potatoes, which makes it a pasta in my opinion. It’s wonderful in any case!
