Cheesy Gnocchi with Spicy Italian Sausage
It’s hump day and you’re craving warm, satisfying comfort food. The type of dish you can prepare ahead of time and slide right into the oven that won’t leave you with a sink full of pots and pans. We suggest serving this Italian-inspired main course with a tangy Caesar salad and warm garlic bread.
