It’s a beautiful sight to behold isn’t it?! Filling & satisfying gnocchi smothered in everything that is good with the world… Have you stopped drooling yet? Great, I’ll crack on then.

Here is what you will need to serve 2
(Recipe adapted from Fox Valley Foodie)

4 Ingredient Gnocchi & Sausage Melt Recipe
Firstly, preheat your oven to 210°C/Fan 200°C.
Then bring a large pan of lightly salted water to the boil. Meanwhile, squeeze the sausage meat out their cases and into a non stick frying pan set over a medium/high heat.
Using a spatula, ‘stab’ the meat until it crumbles up nicely. Continue to fry until cooked through.
While the sausage finishes cooking, tip the gnocchi into the boiling water and simmer for 2 minutes. (Or until it starts to float.)
Then drain the gnocchi & pour in the tomato & garlic sauce. Give it a stir.
Tip in the sausage and give it a final mix through.
Next, tip the lot into an oven proof dish/cast iron pot.
Scatter over all that beautiful cheese…
Lastly, bake in the oven for about 6-8 minutes until the cheese is melted and starting to turn golden.
Tuck in immediately! (As if you’re gonna be able to stop yourself…)
This 4 Ingredient Gnocchi & Sausage Melt really is just a big bowl of happiness. I mean look at it! You just know you’re going to be off the charts satisfied after eating it don’t you? This is one I will certainly be making again. I can just see myself curled up with a large portion of it on a cold Winter’s night… Mmmm cosy!
I hope you enjoyed the post my lovelies, until next time.
