How to Make It

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.

This recipe is in regular rotation at our house, my husband loves it. I pretty much follow the recipe as written. Served with some crusty bread and a glass (or two!) of wine ... mmmm.

I used a bulk mild Italian pork sausage. I think I should have drained it before adding the spinache and gnocchi as it seemed a bit greasy, I added more pasta water than recommended to cut the grease and it was very tasty. Will definately make again.

We used two hot Italian turkey sausage links, added 6 button mushrooms quartered, two sun dried tomatoes, a chopped pinch of both thyme and oregano, and a bunch of asparagus to the recipe. It was super delicious and the husband really loved it!
