If you're looking for a flavorful, 30 minute, one pot, comfort food dinner, you'll love Creamy Italian Sausage Gnocchi, with spinach, tomatoes and mozzarella!
Place Italian sausage, diced onion, minced garlic, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a large skillet. Cook on medium high heat, until sausage has browned, stirring often. Drain and discard any grease accumulated in skillet.
Add gnocchi, canned diced tomatoes, and whipping cream to the skillet. Carefully stir to combine ingredients. Add handfuls of fresh baby spinach to the skillet. Stir and let spinach wilt just a bit in the hot liquid. If necessary, add spinach in batches (I added mine in two batches). Cook mixture on low for about 10 minutes, stirring often, until the spinach has fully wilted down and the gnocchi is cooked.
Add the grated mozzarella cheese to the skillet; stir well, to fully incorporate cheese into the sauce and it melts. Once cheese is fully melted, serve the dish! May garnish with additional grated cheese, if desired.
Gnocchi does not have to be precooked before adding it to dish.
