Gnocchi with Spinach and Chicken Sausage

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) potato gnocchi
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 package (12 ounces) fully cooked Italian chicken sausage links, halved and sliced
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • Cook gnocchi according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook sausage and shallots until sausage is browned and shallots are tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  • Stir in wine. Bring to a boil; cook until liquid is reduced by half, 3-4 minutes. In a small bowl, mix cornstarch and broth until smooth; stir into sausage mixture. Return to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir until thickened, 1-2 minutes. Add spinach and cream; cook and stir until spinach is wilted.
  • Drain gnocchi; add to pan and heat through. Sprinkle with cheese.
