Delicious one-pot dish with gnocchi, tomato sauce, and Italian sausage.
10.6 oz. (300g) Italian sausages (e.g. salsiccia)
some oil for frying
1 red onion, chopped
3–4 garlic cloves, chopped finely
1/2 cup (120ml) dry white wine
1/2 cup (120ml) vegetable broth
14 oz. (400g) tomato passata
7 oz. (200g) heavy cream
some chili flakes (optional)
21 oz. (600g) gnocchi (uncooked)
1.8 oz. (50g) parmesan, grated (plus some more for serving)
some fresh basil leaves
1. Remove the sausage filling from the casing and tear it into small pieces. Peel and chop the onion and garlic. Grate the parmesan cheese and set aside.
2. Add some oil to a large pot or dutch oven and heat up. Add the sausage pieces and fry until lightly browned – takes about 4-6 minutes. Add the chopped onion and continue cooking until the onion also got some color. Add the chopped garlic and let cook for some time until fragrant. Deglaze with white wine and vegetable broth. Stir and let come to a boil. Add the tomato passata and heavy cream and stir until well combined. Season well with salt, pepper, and chili flakes (optional). Add the uncooked gnocchi, reduce the heat and let cook for about 5-8 minutes or until the gnocchi are cooked and soft. Stir from time to time to prevent the sauce from burning. Add the grated parmesan and mix in. Continue cooking until the sauce has thickened to your liking. Serve with some fresh basil leaves and more grated cheese.
