Our month of Trader Joe’s hacks continues today with a TJ’s delicacy: sweet potato gnocchi with butter and sage. A while back, a reader named Maddie shared how she turns the frozen package into a delicious family dinner. Here’s the 15-minute “recipe”…
Recipe: Sweet Potato Gnocchi With Spicy Chicken Sausage and Mushrooms
TJ Spicy Italian Chicken Sausage (optional, just leave out if you’d prefer!)
TJ Sweet Potato Gnocchi
TJ Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
Slice mushrooms and sausage, arranging pieces on a skillet in a single, even layer. Add a glug of olive oil and brown everything over medium heat, turning occasionally. Remove from pan.
Make gnocchi in the empty skillet, according to package directions, adding 1 extra tablespoon water to make it saucier (3 tablespoons, total). Add mushrooms, sausage and halved tomatoes to the pan, heating everything through.
Just before serving, toss in a big handful of arugula. Top with Parmesan and black pepper.
Weeknight dinner, solved. Thanks for the idea, Maddie!
