Recipe: Entree - Sweet Roasted Sausages & Gnocchi


  • Gnocchi
  • 3-4 mild vegetarian or meat sausages, Spicy/Italian work best
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp syrup of any kind
  • 1 tsp  balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh rosemary and/or thyme
  • 1 tbsp olive oil or room-temperature butter
  • 1 tsp each salt and ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley or basil



Boil the gnocchi in lightly-salted water for 6 minutes or according to directions. When gnocchi is fully boiled, drain and rinse with cold water.

Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Chop up the sausages and place them in a large bowl with the gnocchi. Chop up the bell pepper and jalapeno as well, adding them to the bowl.

Whisk together the mustard, syrup, vinegar, rosmary and/or thyme, and oil or melted butter.

Drizzle the mix over the gnocchi and sausages. Mix the bowl with a spoon until covered evenly. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or foil. Sprinkle salt and pepper over everything.

Place in the heated oven for 15 minutes.

Stir everything once and cook for another 10-15 minutes.

Remove from the oven, sprinkle fresh herbs over everything and let cool 5 minutes.

Eat or put away!



  • This recipe template can be used with lots of things, whatever goes with sausages. I like the crispy gnocchi myself but you can also try using acorn squashes or other winter vegetables
