Gnocchi & Sausage Bake

Gnocchi & Sausage Bake

This recipe is so perfect for winter, it really is comforting and very tasty. You can manipulate the spiciness to suit your taste. I use a mix of normal pork sausages and Italian sausages, the Italian sausages packed a punch so I probably didn’t need to add extra chilli…but I did. It was a nice heat! I grabbed a mixture of fresh herbs from the garden…it needs that hit of freshness.

Ingredients

1 tbs olive oil

1 large onion, finely diced

1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

handful of fresh thyme and sage – leaves chopped

4 pork sausages

4 Italian sausages

500g potato gnocchi

200g light cream cheese

200mls vegetable stock

zest of 1 lemon

70g parmesan cheese, grated

Method:

Preheat the oven to 200Β°C

In a large frying pan heat oil, add chilli, onion, herbs and cook for a few minutes

Add the garlic

Squeeze the sausage meat out of their cases into the pan, break the meat up into small pieces

Fry until the meat has turned golden – about 10 mins

While the meat is colouring, cook the gnocchi in a saucepan of simmering water – they should only take a few minutes. Once they float to the surface, drain and add to the sausage mixture.

Stir in the cream cheese, stock and zest – coating the mixture well.

Add in half the parmesan cheese

Pour in to a large ovenproof dish, sprinkle the rest of the parmesan cheese on the top

Cook in the oven for 10-15mins until golden on top

Serve and Enjoy!!
