12: Recipe | One-pan Gnocchi with Turkey Sausage and Kale

I promised you a gnocchi recipe earlier this week, so I am going to deliver on this promise. The original recipe called for pork sausage and cream in the recipe. I lightened it up by using turkey sausage and half & half instead. I also almost always replace chicken broth with vegetable broth in most of my recipes, just because it’s something I usually have at home and it’s a tad healthier. I can’t tell the difference.

I am a big fan of one pan meals, especially on weekdays, because it usually leaves less of a mess in the kitchen and there are fewer dishes to do.  This is also the perfect comfort food for a chillier fall or winter night. I am adding more potatoes back into my diet and the gnocchi are a wonderful variation.

If you try this, let me know what you think! J and I loved it instantly and have made it a few more time since.

  1. Yummy! I quit eating pork years ago and I really love your recipe!

  2. I made this tonight! It was so quick and easy, the perfect Monday night meal. I added sliced white mushrooms, too. And of course red pepper flakes – I put them on EVERYTHING! :-)

    Thanks for sharing, this is definitely going into our regular rotation!

    1. Oh, I am glad you tried it and loved it. You’re right, you can definitely play around with the recipe – it’s so easy and versatile!

  3. Definitely need to try making this! When I do, I’ll let you know how it goes!

  4. This looks good! I love gnocchi! They sell GF gnocchi in the grocery store by our house so I have started to make gnocchi more often. It doesn’t reheat well, though so I usually only make what we can eat at one meal. But it’s easy to halve a recipe and just make 1/2 pound of gnocchi. One of my fave gnocchi recipes is this one: https://iowagirleats.com/2016/06/10/gnocchi-and-chicken-sausage-vegetable-skillet/

    1. Gnocchi are awesome. Thanks for sharing your recipe! I’ll definitely try this out sometime, too!

  5. I wonder if I could make it with escarole or some other green. I love all food, with the exception of Kale. Don’t ask me why. It’s a mystery!

    1. I am sure you could substitute with other greens!
