Pork Sausage Gnocchi Bake

with Roasted Tomatoes & a Crispy Panko Topping

Raise your hand if you’re obsessed with anything involving gnocchi. While we can’t actually see you, we’re right there with you! If you’re new to gnocchi, it’s a pasta/dumpling hybrid that’s partially-made with potatoes, resulting in an extra-tender, extra-carby bite. Here, it’s paired with pork sausage and juicy roasted tomato wedges, then tossed in a savory lemon sauce. To top things off—in this case literally—there’s a layer of cheesy panko. Once baked, it turns golden and crunchy, making it the perfect contrast to the creamy melange below.

Aluminum Foil
Baking Sheet
Large Pot
Medium Pan
Small Bowl



Adjust racks to middle and top positions and preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry all produce. Zest and quarter lemon (quarter both lemons for 4 servings). Mince or grate garlic. Cut tomatoes into ½-inchthick wedges.

Roast Tomatoes

Toss tomatoes on prepared baking sheet with a drizzle of olive oil; season with salt, pepper, and half the Tuscan Heat Spice (you’ll use the rest later). Arrange skin sides down. Roast on middle rack until slightly softened, 20-25 minutes. Once tomatoes are done, remove from oven; heat broiler to high or oven to 500 degrees.

Cook Sausage

Once tomatoes have roasted 10 minutes, remove sausage from casing; discard casing. Heat a drizzle of olive oil in a medium, preferably ovenproof, pan (use a large pan for 4 servings) over mediumhigh heat. Add sausage; cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. Turn off heat and transfer to a plate. TIP: If there’s excess grease in your pan, carefully pour it out.

Cook Gnocchi

While sausage cooks, add gnocchi to pot of boiling water. Cook until tender, 3-4 minutes. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water (1½ cups for 4 servings), then drain.

Make Sauce

Melt 1 TBSP butter in pan used for sausage over medium heat. Add garlic and remaining Tuscan Heat Spice; cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. Add ½ cup reserved pasta cooking water (¾ cup for 4) and stock concentrate. Bring to a simmer; whisk in cream cheese until fully incorporated. Stir in sausage, gnocchi, tomatoes, half the Italian cheese, and 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4) until combined. Add lemon zest and a squeeze of lemon juice to taste. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat.

Finish and Serve

In a small bowl, combine panko, remaining Italian cheese, and a large drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. (TIP: If your pan isn’t ovenproof, transfer gnocchi now to a baking dish.) Sprinkle panko mixture over gnocchi. Broil or bake on top rack until panko is golden brown and cheese has melted, 2-3 minutes. Divide between plates and serve with remaining lemon wedges on the side.
