Sausage and Gnocchi Bowls

  • 1 lb. Italian sausage, casings (if any) removed
  • 6-8 sweet mini peppers, sliced into rings
  • 1 small onion, peeled and sliced into thin wedges
  • 1 (16-18 oz.) pkg. gnocchi
  • ½ c. pureed roasted tomatoes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Brown the Italian sausage in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Near the end of the browning cycle, add the mini peppers and onion and sauté until the sausage is completely cooked and the vegetables are tender and lightly browned. Remove to a plate and keep warm.

Add the gnocchi to the skillet and brown lightly over medium heat. If you find the gnocchi is sticking to the pan, add a little olive oil and continue browning until the outer edges of the gnocchi are a little crisp. Return the sausage and vegetables to the skillet and add the pureed roasted tomatoes. Continue cooking for 5 minutes or until everything is heated through. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve warm in bowls.
