  • 2 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 package cauliflower gnocchi
  • 4 sun-dried tomato chicken sausage links, sliced into 1/4-inch pieces
  • 3 tbsp pesto
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Add frozen cauliflower to a medium bowl. Toss with 1 1/2 teaspoons of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Spread gnocchi on the baking sheet, making sure none of the gnocchi are touching. Roast in the oven for 10 minutes.

  2. While the gnocchi roasts, add the sausage to the same medium bowl. Toss with the remaining olive oil. Season with a little bit of salt and pepper. Once the gnocchi have been in the oven 10 minutes, remove the pan from the oven. Push the gnocchi to the side (but still spread apart) and add the sausage to the pan. Place back in the oven until the sausage and gnocchi are crisp and golden brown, another 15-20 minutes.

  3. Once the gnocchi and sausage are crisp, remove from oven and drizzle with pesto. Spoon into bowls and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
