When you’re running out of time, make pasta. It’s as simple as that.
And when you get tired of the usual pasta, make gnocchi.
Gnocchi Florentine with Sausage
1 pound gnocchi
4 chicken sausage (or Italian, doesn’t matter…use your favorite), cooked, cut into bite size pieces
1 cup frozen spinach, cooked and well drained
1 1/2 cups part skim ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
grated pecorino romano cheese (for topping)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook gnocchi until al dente. Drain, add marinara (enough to coat) and place in baking dish. Add sausage, spinach, ricotta and mozzarella. Stir until combined. Top with pecorino romano.
Bake for 20 minutes or until sauce starts lightly bubbling and top begins to brown.
