weeknight dinners: Trader Joe's Sweet Potato Gnocchi w/Sage & Butter + sausage + veggies

Thursday, April 23, 2020

This is not the prettiest meal I've made but it is a 4.999 star meal. Even Harrison, who is the v. particular, gave this a full 5 stars. And it's really easy to pull together (tbh the hardest part of this meal is getting your hands on the gnocchi at Trader Joe's).

Servings: 3
Total Time: 15 minutes

  • Trader Joe's Sweet Potato Gnocchi with Sage & Butter (picture of the bag below)
  • 4 Italian style chicken sausages (TJ's has lots of options, I like the hot Italian) 
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
Pull it together:
  • Slice your sausages into 1/2 inch discs
  • Chop up the spinach (personal preference)
  • Put your frozen gnocchi in a frying pan with 2 TBS water. Cover and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally
  • After 3 minutes add in the sausage and cook with the gnocchi and sausage uncovered for 3-5 minutes, stirring occassionally
    • Note: if your sausage is not pre-cooked (the label on the package will say "pre-cooked" of it is), start cooking your sausage in a pan over medium heat while the gnocchi is cooking. Most TJ's chicken sausages are pre-cooked.
  •  In the last minute add in the spinach and stir to combine.
Because the butter + sage has so much flavor, the only thing I add in is red pepper flakes at the end.
