Beefy Taco Gnocchi

A few weeks ago, my bestie, Pam, introduced me to her sausage and gnocchi supper. I even posted her recipe for you. I have been playing with ideas in my head ever since. A dangerous place let me tell ya!

I have created three new recipes, derived from hers and I tried one tonight. It went over well, so I will share it with you . This is budget friendly and I think you will like it. I fed five people with this recipe and it can easily be cut in half. I can not wait to see what they think of the nest one.
