I had a bunch of fresh veggies and combined them with sausage, gnocchi and goat cheese when I needed a quick dinner. Mix and match your own ingredients for unique results. —Dahlia Abrams, Detroit, Michigan

"Delicious! So good it doesn't even NEED the chicken sausage. Would be a delicious meatless meal without it."

"Loved it! I was kind of wary of goat cheese (I don't know that I'd ever had it), but it ends up making the sauce super creamy and delicious! This is going into my regular rotation of dinner meals."

"This has become a go-to meal for me. I love how quick and easy it is. Great for a weeknight. And I love the creamy goat cheese! The only modification I make is to remove the chicken sausage from the casing before cooking for a more crumbled texture."

"One of the best meals I have ever made!!"

"I made this the other day and it was absolutely amazing! I added one additional sausage two more garlic cloves (because we love it) and probably 5 oz of the basil goat cheese and a touch more wine just to have more sauce. My boyfriend said it's the best thing I've EVER made. (And I cook for him a lot!) so that's really saying something. Can't wait to make again. Maybe add some crispy bacon on top? Thanks for this great recipe!"
