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

  • 2 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups spaghetti sauce

Directions

Cook gnocchi according to package directions; drain. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook sausage 5-7 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking up sausage into crumbles. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Drain. Add spinach and tomatoes; cook and stir just until spinach is wilted.
Stir in gnocchi and spaghetti sauce; heat through.
Freeze option: Freeze cooled gnocchi mixture in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a skillet, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary.

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