Sheet Pan Gnocchi Key Ingredients

Smart Chicken Organic Spinach Asiago Uncured Chicken Sausage is a healthier alternative to beef or pork sausage and also has a lower carbon footprint! These delicious sausages are made with less fat, fewer calories, zero nitrates, and no MSG!

Gnocchi is perfect for roasting and is super budget friendly! You can find gnocchi in the pasta aisle of your grocery store and the brands that are imported from Italy are usually under $3.00!

Cherry or grape tomatoes deepen in flavor when they are roasted and once their skin breaks, they are ultra juicy. The way the gnocchi combines with the tomato juice in the bottom of the bowl… so good!!

Fresh basil is a must for this sheet pan gnocchi! It brings the flavors of the olive oil, gnocchi, and mozzarella balls together so beautifully.

Chef’s tips

  • Use an infused olive oil. I love using gourmet infused olive oils in my dishes because it adds a layer of flavor. Since olive oil is not only used for roasting but also as a flavoring agent, I recommend using an infused one, like a garlic or rosemary infused!
  • Use marinated mozzarella balls. Buying premarinated mozzarella balls will add even more flavor since the mozzarella balls have had time to marry in the flavors and absorb so every bite will be delicious.

    I thought about using this recipe ( modified )โ€ฆ. For the feast of the seven fishes .
    Do you think the gnocchi with pair well with shrimp instead of the chicken sausage

      Hi Karen,
      You can definitely use shrimp in this recipe, what a great idea! My advice is to cook all the ingredients except for the shrimp. Peel, devein, and season the shrimp in a bowl and in the last few minutes of cooking, add the shrimp to the sheet pan. Smaller shrimp only need 2 minutes to cook, larger shrimp need about 4. This will ensure the shrimp remains juicy and tender while all the other ingedients have proper time to roast.
