I really love gnocchi and this is definitely my new favorite way to make it. It is simple and quick but it is so delicious. It has the best flavor combinations! Garlic, sundried tomatoes, mozzarella, parmesan, basil, and more. For the chicken sausage, I used the caprese version of Gilbert’s craft sausage, which complimented the dish perfectly. You could also use a different flavor or just a plain one. Feel free to add in extra sausage and cheese to make it even heartier. Plus, it’s extra delicious the next day because those flavors really have time to soak together overnight!
