That bff of mine talked about her Sausage and Cheese Gnocchi just one too many times and I had to have her recipe today and I had to make it today! Her hubby Dave, well he loves it.. he would probably eat it daily if she made it daily. She made this up in that beautiful head of hers and she has passed it to me… I told her after one bite that I wanted to blog it… she gave me full permission to share this with y’all and as I have been playing with budget friendly meals inside my own head I knew this was a great place to start. This meal cost me …are you ready… $5.75 …I know right!!! It fed us for supper and I have a bowl left for hubbyman to take to work tomorrow.. it is all nestled into his lunchbox as I type.
You can not beat the price and still have leftovers!! I am so happy to start these recipes for you … most of my meals are NOT expensive, but I think I am going to try my hand at seeing how much flavor I can get with half the money …. wish me luck, no really… I may need it …
1 pd bulk sausage ( any brand)
1 can premium cheddar sauce
1 pound pre-made gnocchi
1/4 cup milk ( I used half and half because I was out of milk… yeah I know)
chives ( optional )
1/4 tsp each cumin, taco seasoning, and six pepper blend ( optional )
black pepper to taste – I do not add salt, the cheese has more than enough
I already had the cream and seasonings, so those were “freebies”
Here are Pam’s directions :
Put on a pot of water to heat the gnocchi. Bring to a hard simmer.
Cook sausage until browned and crumbled. Drain well.
Add the cheese and the milk to make it thinner and creamier, stir well.
Add the gnocchi to the pot of water and cook for 2 minutes to soften. Then add to the sausage and cheese mixture and fold in the seasonings gently.
The seasonings were my own addition, Pam uses Cumin, chili powder and garlic powder to taste, I used the ones I posted above.. the possibilities are endless!! Stir well and serve immediately. Top with chives, if using! Enjoy!!
15 minutes from start to finish!!
Love you Pammy Dawn!
This cheese would be good on cardboard! IT IS AUH-MAZING!!!!
