tips for making sausage and Gnocchi skillet

  • You could also use sausage that hasn’t been cooked yet, if you are looking for more sausage taste. We used pre-cooked turkey sausage in this recipe, but you could use any sausage.I have also used pre-cooked apple chicken sausage, (found near the hot dog section at the grocery store) and it tasted amazing with this.
  • You can easily make this meal ahead of time. I make it in the morning, then I wait to put it in the oven until I am home from work and various activities.Or if i know it’s going to be a really crazy week, I cut up all my vegetables on Sunday, for the week to come.

If i don’t like a certain vegetable, what can i replace it with?

I love how versatile this recipe is. You can seriously almost put any vegetable in this recipe, and it will taste amazing.

-If you are looking to replace the tomatoes, we recommend adding a canned vegetable that has some sauce to it. You could use corn, or you could also add some salsa, or ketchup, or some sort of tomato base.

Other than that, you could add or take away any of the other ingredients. You could add, broccoli, carrots, corn, any other type of bean, green beans, asparagus, etc.
