Autumn Cauliflower Gnocchi With Sauteed Vegetables

I lovee Gnocchi and am not afraid to say, I am totally on the Trader Joe's Cauliflower Gnocchi train. It's delicious and once you get a system for working with it, it doesn't disappoint. If you don't have access to a TJ's no fear, regular gnocchi will definitely do the trick, and I have a copy cat Autumnal Sauce on my website that is super delicious as well.

Main Ingredients

2 bags trader joes cauliflower gnocchi (or other gnocchi)

2 cups trader joes autumnal harvest sauce (or my copy cat sauce)

1 red pepper, cored and copped

8 ounces baby portabella mushroom, caps washed and chopped

1 pound shaved brussels sprouts

1 bundle kale, washed and center rib removed

2 tablespoons fresh sage, chopped

4 links precooked chicken sausage, nitrate free, cut into 1/2 moons (optional)

1 cup bone broth (or other broth), divided

salt and pepper


1Begin by chopping your red pepper into 1/2" pieces, slice your mushrooms, and cut your chicken sausage into 1/2 moons if using.

2Pre-heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Spray with non-stick spray. Add your mushrooms, red pepper, chicken sausage, sage, and saved Brussel sprouts to the pan. Season with salt and pepper and cook for 3-5 minutes or until beginning to caramelize.

3Meanwhile, remove the center rib from the kale leaves after washing, and chop the kale into 1" ribbons. Add the kale to the saute pan; cook for another 2-3 minutes or until the kale is wilted down all the way. Remove the mixture from heat, pour into bowl and set aside.

4Return pan to heat, add the 2 bags of cauliflower gnocchi to the pan in a single layer with 1/2 cup of broth. Cover and let stand for 2-3 minutes to take the chill off the gnocchi. Remove the lid, over medium-high heat, gently continue to move around the gnocchi for another 3-4 minutes, breaking apart any gnocchi that are stuck together and let them sear.**

5Add the 2 cups of autumnal pasta sauce to the pan slowly, folding the gnocchi into the sauce. Add the bowl of vegetables and chicken sausage; fold in the mixture until is it all covered in sauce. Add the other 1/2 cup of broth to thin out the sauce.

6Remove from heat, serve and enjoy!!

Additional Notes

**Be careful during this part, the gnocchi likes to stick together so it's important to constantly move the gnocchi around carefully with a spatula breaking them apart as you go.
