Italian Sausage & Gnocchi Soup
"Easy to make, using packaged gnocchi. Serve with a green salad and crusty bread. I used pork sausage, but you could use the hot italian turkey links."

10 Stars! So easy and so delicious! My mistake was not doubling the recipe. This is going into my "keeper" file. I planned on taking a photo after work today but my son ate the leftovers!.
- 8 ounces pork sausage (two 4 ounce links, hot Italian pork sausage)
- 1 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 shallot, peeled and minced
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 2 cups water
- 1 can (14 ounce) beef broth
- 1 can (14.5 ounce) diced tomatoes (undrained)
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 package (16 ounce) gnocchi (vacuum packed)
- 2 ounces fresh chopped baby spinach
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (divided)
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
Do not remove casings from links. Cook sausage in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat until just browned, turning them over once. Remove from pan and let cool slightly on a cutting board. Slice links into 1/4 inch slices.
Add oil to the same pot and stir in shallot and garlic and cook until the shallot begins to soften.
Add water, broth, tomatoes (and their juice), and tomato paste; bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
Add sliced links, gnocchi and spinach and cook until the gnocchi float to the top, about 8-10 minutes.
Stir in cream and season with salt and pepper, if needed.
Ladle into 4 bowls and top each with 1/8 cup grated Parmesan. Serve.
