Just made this recipe last night and it was a real hit! My family enjoyed the toasted gnocchi and I made the following changes: 1) Used Italian turkey sausage; 2) Omitted the chicken broth; 3) added 1 tsp each of the following spices: oregano, parsley, rosemary, thyme and basil; 3) added 2 handfuls of baby arugula at the end and stirred till just wilted. Quick and easy (~25 minutes total) recipe for a great weeknight dinner. Served with seasoned & roasted asparagus (roasted while I made the skillet) for total meal. Absolutely will make again and again; enjoy!
Great recipe as is. I can't find whole wheat gnocchi where I live, so have to use regular. I've made this several times, usually using leftover sausage that's aleady been cooked. My two year old twins love it, so it's in our regular rotation! Oh and I use a cast iron skillet, which gives it an all around crispness on the edges.
Pretty easy & nice change from "regular" pastas. We used frozen gnocchi so had to cook, drain and then brown -- otherwise we followed recipe. Served with the recommended grape/hazelnut salad and a little white wine. Good cold-weather supper.
Great taste, easy to come together. However, even with CHICKEN Italian sausage, the calorie count can't come any lower than 310 calories for 4 servings. Was really disappointed about that after eating so much of it! We made a double batch because we had 6 adults eating it. I questioned adding the chicken stock at the end of cooking, and if you ate it in a bowl it would be okay. I would probably halve the chicken stock or add it earlier in the cooking. Good, but the nutritional info needs to be reworked.
