Spicy Sausage, Spinach, and Mushroom Gnocchi

This 15 minute meal is not only easy to get on the table, it's also delicious! Bonus? It uses one of my favorite foods - gnocchi!

I rarely have an issue finding time to cook (ie, eat!) but I do struggle with getting recipes on the blog. I combed through my files over the weekend and I have a ton waiting to get posted! Since it's quickly becoming spring here - and many other places - I knew I had to hurry and get my cold weather dishes out there before it's too late!

There is something comforting about a big bowl of gnocchi, so this dish lends itself perfectly for a cooler day. That certainly doesn't mean it's too heavy for a warm day - it's not - but it doesn't scream spring like lots of other dishes. It was such a hit at our house (and done in 15 minutes!!) that I had to get it out there for you to enjoy.

Gnocchi can be made at home but in order to pull off a 15 minute meal, store-bought is necessary (and still delicious!). I usually find it near the dried pasta at the grocery store. You can also choose any sausage you love, really, as long as it crumbles. I used Italian for this!

Spicy Sausage, Spinach, and Mushroom Gnocchi
1 (16-ounce) package potato gnocchi
3/4 lb spicy ground sausage
1 small onion, diced
8 ounces baby portobello mushrooms, sliced
1 (10 ounce) box chopped frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
salt and pepper, to taste
Grated Parmesan, for serving

Bring a pot of water to boil and cook gnocchi according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the sausage, breaking it into smaller pieces. Once most of the sausage is browned, add the onion and mushrooms. Cook, stirring often, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Add the drained spinach and gnocchi to the skillet and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Top each serving with grated Parmesan and serve hot.
