  • 32 ounces Gnocchi

  • 28 ounces Pasta Sauce
  • ½ - 1 cup shredded Mozzarella
  • Salt


  • Bring pot of water to boil, salt lightly.
  • Preheat oven to 425.
  • While the water is boiling brown the sausage in skillet.
  • Place gnocchi in the boiling water and cook until it floats, roughly 2 minutes.
  • Remove gnocchi and sausage from their pans and add to lasagna pan, or cast iron skillet, and combine with pasta sauce.
  • Top generously with cheese.
  • Bake in 425 degree oven for 10 minutes, or until cheese has browned to your liking.


You do not need to add a lot of salt to the water when boiling the gnocchi. It will absorb the salt pretty easily and can taste over-salted.
The amount of cheese needed will depend on the surface area of your baking vessel.
