Sheet Pan Gnocchi with Sausage
and broccolini / tomatoes

Active: 45 Total: 45

This is a true one pan meal - just toss all of the ingredients together and roast until tender. Baked gnocchi has a slightly different texture than boiled gnocchi, but is still delicious. It's a bit more firm with a golden crust, almost like a dense version of a tater tot.
Smarts: A single sheet pan is all you need for 4 servings, but if you are making more than 4 servings you may need a second sheet pan so all of the ingredients have plenty of room.

Make

  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C.

  2. Set out a sheet pan. Add gnocchi, tomatoes, and sausage. Drizzle with olive oil, oregano, garlic powder, and red pepper flakes. Gently toss to combine. Arrange broccolini around the edges of the pan. Drizzle with some more olive oil. Season everything with some salt and pepper.

  3. Bake the gnocchi, stirring halfway through cooking, until both broccolini and gnocchi are tender, 20 to 25 minutes.

  4. Remove the sheet pan from the oven and take broccolini off the pan. Set it aside on a serving plate. 

  5. To remaining ingredients on the sheet pan, scatter mozzarella pearls over top. Return it to the oven and continue roasting until the cheese is melted, ~5 minutes more.

  6. Divide gnocchi and vegetables between shallow bowls or plates. Top with basil and parmesan. Serve broccolini on the side. Enjoy!

Had really high hopes for this, but it was just ok for us. Definitely needs more moisture. Also, my broccolini completely dried out in the oven.

So fast, didn’t remove the broccoli. Only had bagged regular broccoli. We both loved it.

Oh my gosh this was amazing!! I was skeptical about baking the gnocchi without boiling first but boy was I pleasantly surprised with how it turned out! We doubled this and ate it for dinner two nights in a row. So glad we did!! Will make this again for sure.

This was so good! And very filling! And easy! I made sure everything was coated well with olive oil. I used shredded mozzarella because I already had some. Instead of basil and parmesan, I topped portions with some pesto and it added lots of flavor. I air fried some frozen veggies because I forgot the fresh and that paired well. I can't wait to make it again!

Not sure if it was the type of sausage or what but I wasn’t a big fan.

This was freakin’ fantastic. I used a too spicy sausage, so have a pin in this to use the chicken apple Adele’s.
