What is so great about this spicy sausage, spinach, and mushroom gnocchi

Gnocchi is something we don’t eat often because I don’t really think of gnocchi as a “quick” dinner option but it TOTALLY is.

I was walking the aisles of the grocery store and saw packages of gnocchi so I grabbed two and figured I’d make something with them ’cause of their versatility.

Trust me, if you can boil water, you can cook gnocchi. It takes like 5 minutes to cook gnocchi :)

I don’t do the homemade gnocchi – I could, I just don’t have the time and I’m sure you don’t either, so grab yourself a package of pre-made gnocchi and get this dish on your dinner table!

I really like that all the ingredients in this dish are either already pre-cooked or they cook in like 5 minutes.

Mushrooms and spinach cook super fast and if you’re using frozen spinach, like I am in this recipe, you’re essentially just warming it through.

The sausage and onions take the “longest” to cook but even so, that’s like 5 minutes.

Gnocchi takes 2-3 minutes in boiling water.

Seriously, what is there not to love about how quick this dish comes together?

See for yourself in this recipe video how QUICKLY it takes for me to put together this spicy sausage, spinach, and mushroom gnocchi!
