This Gnocchi with Mushrooms and Italian Sausage is a real family favourite. It’s easy to put together, since it uses premade gnocchi from the pantry, and it’s so, so good.
I discovered gnocchi one day after a discussion at a play date. A friend of mine who comes from an Italian background was talking about what she was having for dinner. I had only tried gnocchi once or twice before at a restaurant.
I was certainly intimidated by the idea of trying to make my own little potato pasta pillows, which is what they are. I was surprised to hear that she bought hers in the dry pasta section of the grocery store. And I thought that if she liked it, I should give it a try too.
She mentioned that she sometimes made gnocchi with a little wine, garlic, mushrooms, parmesan cheese, and sometimes a bit of cream. I thought that sounded delicious, so that very night I picked up the ingredients, added Italian sausage, and we’ve been enjoying it ever since!
Here’s my version of the recipe, easy enough for a weeknight family dinner, but delicious enough for company. It’s great with a nice green salad, crusty garlic bread, and a bottle of wine.

This is a one skillet dinner too, so easy clean up. Just another reason to love it.
If you happen to have any leftovers, it sure is a lunch to look forward to the next day.
