It's been a while since I have posted a dinner recipe... I may or may not have had a bit of a baking obsession the last few weeks. The good news is this gnocchi dish was worth the wait! It is so delicious and so easy, and we can't help but grab seconds whenever I make it. It only needs 10 ingredients and less than 30 minutes to make - it seriously doesn't get better than this.
Only 10 ingredients in this quick and easy comfort food:
As the name of this dish suggests, you only need one pot (or pan) to make this super simple dish so I will just give a very brief overview of the steps required:
Step 1: In a large pan, heat oil over medium heat, then add sausage and cook, stirring frequently, until browned on all sides, then add in the bell pepper strips, and cook another couple minutes until pepper starts to soften
Step 2: Add in the tomato paste, stir, then add the chicken broth, cream, garlic powder, Italian seasoning, and finally the gnocchi. Stir to combine, bring to a simmer, then cover with a lid and allow to cook for 5 minutes
Step 3: Remove lid, add spinach, stir, then cook an additional 3-5 minutes or until sauce is thickened and spinach is wilted. Sauce will thicken slightly as it cools as well
If you have any of this left over (doubtful!) you can store it in the fridge in a sealed container for a couple days. I reheat mine in the microwave the day after making it as my lunch and it is so good! I wouldn't recommend freezing this as the texture of both the sauce and the gnocchi will be inferior than when it is fresh.
