1 Prepare the ingredients & make the base

Place an oven rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 450°F. Wash and dry the tomatoes. Between the two trays, evenly divide the gnocchi, tomato sauce, cream, tomatoes, Italian seasoning, and as much of the chile paste as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper; stir to thoroughly combine.

Add the sausage & bake the trays
2 Add the sausage & bake the trays

Add the sausage in an even layer on top of the prepared base (tearing into bite-sized pieces before adding). Tightly cover the trays with foil and bake 30 minutes. Leaving the oven on, remove from the oven.

Add the cheese & serve your dish
3 Add the cheese & serve your dish

Carefully remove the foil. Add the cheese in an even layer (tearing into small pieces before adding). Return to the oven and bake, uncovered, 5 to 7 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and the sausage is cooked through. Remove from the oven. Let stand at least 3 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
