Gnocchi Skillet With Chicken Sausage & Tomatoes

Ready in 15 minutes.  Serves 4.

Note:  Ad more veggies, if you’d like!


  • 1 pound frozen or shelf-stable gnocchi
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper—to taste
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes sliced in half lengthwise
  • 9 ounces cooked chicken sausage (3 links cut into 1/4—inch coins)
  • 1—2 ounces fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced (1/2 to 1 cup loosely packed)


  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add the gnocchi and cook for 2 minutes, or according to package directions.  Drain and toss with a drizzle of olive oil.
  2. Heat a 10-inch or larger skillet over medium heat with a light drizzle of olive oil. Add the sausage and cook until it begins to brown (2-3 minutes).  Push the sausages into a pile at the edge of the skillet and turn the heat up to high.
  3. When the skillet is hot, add the tomatoes, skin down, crowding if necessary. Cook until they are blistered (1-2 minutes).  Stir in the sausage and cook until both tomatoes and sausage are slightly browned, about 2 minutes more.  Stir in gnocchi and cook just until all is combined, but the tomatoes have not broken down into sauce.
  4. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in basil. Taste and season with salt and pepper.  Serve immediately.
