    One-Pan Pesto & Goat Cheese Gnocchi with Broccoli, Mushrooms & Almonds
    Title
    • 10 oz Hot Italian Pork Sausage
    • ¾ lb Gnocchi
    • ½ lb Broccoli
    • 1 oz Goat Cheese
    • 4 oz Mushrooms
    • 3 Tbsps Basil Pesto
    • 2 Tbsps Sliced Roasted Almonds
    • 1 Lemon
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the mushrooms into bite-sized pieces. Cut off and discard the bottom 1/2 inch of the broccoli stem; roughly chop the broccoli. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lemon to get 1 teaspoon of zest. Quarter and deseed the lemon. In a bowl, combine the almonds, lemon zest, and a drizzle of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

    2 Cook the sausage

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sausage. Cook, stirring frequently and breaking the meat apart with a spoon, 7 to 9 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

    Cook the vegetables
    3 Cook the vegetables

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushroom pieces in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add the broccoli florets. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until lightly browned and tender (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil).

    To the pan, add the gnocchi, 3/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), pesto, and goat cheese (crumbling before adding). Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 4 minutes, or until the gnocchi are coated. Add the cooked sausage. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined and the gnocchi are tender. Turn off the heat. Carefully stir in the juice of 2 lemon wedges. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished gnocchi topped with the seasoned almonds. Serve the remaining lemon wedges on the side. Enjoy!
