Ingredients

  • 2 9-ounce packages refrigerated gnocchi or one 17.5-ounce package shelf-stable gnocchi
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pound Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 5-ounce bag baby spinach
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated Parmesan, plus more for garnishing

Preparation

  1. Cook the gnocchi according to the package directions, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid.

    Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the sausage and cook, crumbling it with a spoon, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic, spinach, salt, and pepper and cook, tossing frequently, until the spinach wilts, about 3 minutes. Add the drained gnocchi, the reserved cooking liquid, and the Parmesan and toss. Divide among individual bowls and sprinkle with additional Parmesan.

    Tip: Gnocchi are small, quick-cooking dumplings, usually made from potatoes. You'll find them with the fresh or dried pasta in supermarkets, or you can substitute a short pasta, such as rigatoni, penne, or farfalle.
