  • 2 teaspoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Pound Italian Sausage
  • 1 16 Ounce Jar Roasted Red Peppers, Juice Reserved
  • 2 Cloves Garlic
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Basil
  • ½ teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Pinch Salt & Pepper
  • 1 Cup Chicken or Vegetable Broth
  • 16 Ounces Dried Gnocchi
  • 6-8 Ounces Fresh or Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • ½ Cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese
  • Cup Fresh Basil, Optional See Note


  • Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook, breaking up the meat until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Pour the cooked sausage onto a paper towel lined plate to drain the grease.
  • Meanwhile, add the roasted red peppers with about ¼ cup of their juice, the garlic cloves, oregano, basil, red pepper flakes, and a pinch of salt and pepper to a blender or food processor and pulse for 1-2 minutes until smooth.
  • Return the skillet to the stove. Add the cooked sausage, the gnocchi, the red pepper sauce, and the broth to the pan and stir well. Simmer over medium-low heat for 3-5 minutes, just until gnocchi is soft.
  • Top the gnocchi with the mozzarella as desired. Place under your oven broiler (on high) for 1-2 minutes until cheese is melted.
  • Remove from the oven and top with parmesan and basil. Serve immediately.



NOTE:  If you do not have fresh basil, you can sprinkle about 1-2 teaspoons of dried basil over the gnocchi before serving if desired.
