  • 10-12" Non-stick Skillet


  • 2 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 1 lb ground Italian sausage I use Butcher Box - it's sugar free!
  • ½ onion diced
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 packages Trader Joe's Cauliflower Gnocchi
  • 3 cups chopped kale stems removed
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • cup Original Nutpods or 1/3 cup full fat coconut milk or heavy cream
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp crushed red pepper
  • ½ tsp sea salt


  • Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the sausage and cook for 5-7 minutes, crumbling with a spoon, until it's mostly browned.
  • Remove the sausage using a slotted spoon and set it aside.
  • Add the remaining tbsp of olive oil to the pan along with the onion and garlic. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Add the frozen gnocchi and spread it out in an even layer. Cover and cook, untouched, for 3 minutes. Stir the onions, garlic, and gnocchi and cover again. Cook untouched for an additional 3 minutes. This helps the gnocchi to crisp up a bit. Stir, and continue cooking for 2-3 additional minutes until the gnocchi is cooked through.
  • Add the sausage back into the pan along with the kale. Stir 1-2 minutes until the kale is wilted. Add in the chicken broth, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, and salt and stir. Let it come to a light boil, then stir in the Nutpods. Simmer 1-2 minutes. Serve as-is or with some fresh grated parmesan, if desired!
