I get creative in the kitchen with dishes like this when we're too busy to go to the grocery store. My daughter loves this dish, and it's easy for little fingers to pick up while still learning to use utensils. —Carla Andrews, Lorton, Virginia

"Packed with flavor! Whole wheat gnocchi is a good option. I doubled recipe - 5 sausage links & 10 oz spinach were plenty.- Theresa"
