One Skillet Creamy Gnocchi With Italian Sausage & Kale
1 pound mild Italian sausage
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped yellow onion
2 teaspoons minced garlic
3/4 cup chicken broth, optional to use vegetable broth
3/4 cup milk
6 ounces (about 4 cups lightly packed) kale, ribs removed, chopped
1-16 ounce package potato gnocchi
Freshly ground black pepper
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup shredded parmesan cheese, plus more for serving if desired
Heat oil in a non-stick 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Crumble sausage into skillet. Use a spatula to break up large chunks, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through, about 6 – 7 minutes.
Transfer sausage to a plate lined with paper towels while leaving 2 teaspoons of oil in skillet (discard any remaining oil). Set sausage aside.
Return skillet to stove top. Reduce heat to medium. Add onion to skillet and saute 4 minutes, or until softened, then add garlic and saute 30 seconds.
Pour in chicken broth and milk; bring to a simmer. Add chopped kale, cover skillet and let steam 2 minutes, or until wilted.
Add in gnocchi, toss to coat, season with pepper to taste. Cover and cook until tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, about 4 – 5 minutes.
Add in cream, parmesan and cooked sausage and toss. Serve warm with more parmesan if desired.
