  • 1 lb Gnocchi
  • 4 Sausage links Sweet is best
  • 1 bag Baby spinach
  • 7 Tbsp Salted butter See note
  • 1 C White wine
  • 2 Cloves of garlic Or 1 tsp pre-chopped
  • Parmesan cheese for topping optional


  • Cut the sausage into 1/2 inch pieces and brown in a saucepan. (Or cook through if not pre-cooked)
  • Fill a large pot 1/2 way with water and bring to a boil. Put the Gnocchi in the pot and boil for 3 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and put Gnocchi and sausage back in large pot and set aside. 
  • In a clean saucepan melt 1 Tbsp butter. Add garlic and sauté until fragrant (1-2 minutes). 
  • Add the wine to the butter and let it simmer until reduced a little. About 3 minutes. 
  • Add 1 Tbsp at a time to the sauce and allow to melt completely before adding the next Tbsp of butter.
  • Add the sauce and spinach to the large pot with the gnocchi and sausage. Put on low heat until the spinach is wilted. 
  • Dish up and enjoy! Sprinkle with parmesan cheese if you wish. 


Using salted butter adds just the right amount of salt for me, but feel free to use unsalted and control the saltiness to your taste.
