Gnocchi and Italian Sausage Skillet

Hello everyone!

My apologies for the lack of recipes lately. I have been busy doing some camping, enjoying the wonderful summer sun, sipping cocktails, and neglecting my internet duties.

So here’s a quick skillet recipe for you. I threw this together one evening because I had some gnocchi burning a hole in my cupboard.

This meal is a great quick skillet dish that is super easy and super tasty (not just regular tasty!)

Bon appetit,
