Sausage Gnocchi Bake

Sausage Gnocchi Bake - Fab Food 4 All

If you love tasty, gooey, cheesy, delicious comfort food then I’m sure you’re going to love this Sausage Gnocchi Bake from Dean Edwards and Bacofoil. I don’t cook with gnocchi nearly often enough which is daft as I really like it so when I was asked if I’d like to make this recipe I jumped at the chance. I have to say the Bacofoil Non-Stick Kitchen Foil worked a treat with this dish as nothing stuck to it at all, no more glued on food residues with this great kitchen aid! I don’t know about you, but soaking pans to wash late at night is a job I could be doing without!

So back to the Sausage Gnocchi Bake, I put a teaspoon of hot sauce in ours (Dean says it’s optional) which made the dish quite hot, it’s amazing how a little goes a long way! My daughter said she enjoyed the heat (not always a fan of hot things) but if you were making it for small children I think you would leave the hot sauce out. The dish was quite filling so I think you could easily get 5 portions out of it especially if you have a young family. As the nights get colder I think this really is a great comforting meal to feed the family. I’m off to think of some more uses for this ingenious foil now!

You can watch Dean making a slightly different version here using chorizo!
