Sausage & Gnocchi Skillet
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 lb. gnocchi
- 12 ounces Italian sausages, casings removed
- 1 (14.5 oz.) can diced roasted tomatoes
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 c. half & half
- 1/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the gnocchi and cook, stirring frequently, for about 7-8 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove from pan. Add the sausage to the skillet, and cook until no longer pink.
Preheat the broiler. (You can also skip this step and just let the cheese melt on top of the warm skillet. The cheese will be less bubbly, but equally delicious.)
Add the diced tomatoes, garlic, basil, oregano, salt and pepper to the pan. Bring to a simmer. Return the gnocchi to the pan. Stir in the half & half, and cook a few minutes more, until everything is heated through.
Top with the Parmesan cheese. Place the skillet under the broiler for about 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
